Key Stage 1 Stories about Animals Ecological and Environmental Interest - Fiction

Jelly-Boy Synopsis

An unconventional, every-kid picture book that has the potential to inspire the next generation of readers to protect our oceans.

What happens when a jellyfish falls in love with a plastic bag she mistakes for a jelly-boy? Jelly-Boy is different. He is big and strong. And not as wobbly as the other Jelly-Boys. By the time Jelly-Girl discovers the dangerous truth about her new friend, it may already be too late.

This is an inventive approach to tackling a conservation issue that is plaguing our world: too much plastic in the ocean. Told in a kid-friendly and humorous way, this is a story with the potential to encourage dialogue around an important issue.
