When a new boy drifts into the life of a cute and gorgeous young jellyfish it is love at first sight. She observes he is big and strong, a good listener and so very brave but her family doesn’t like him, ‘He’s not one of us. We’ve seen his type before. He’s dangerous.’ However, the jellyfish can’t let him go but observes some worrying things. Thankfully her family are there for her. The story font and illustrations work together to engage children with the message about the harmful effects of plastics in the marine environment. The book is complete with a ‘Did you know’ page at the end. A great book to promote discussions and understandings of this environmental topic.
