Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Addressing the reader in the second person, the narrator makes the unique life of jellyfish dramatically personal. Jellies have no volition at all. Neither are they able to worry about it, for they have no brain. They depend on ocean currents to move them from place to place and to bring them food. Chemicals protect them by stinging at a touch from friend or foe. Some can produce food inside their bodies, but most are fed by chance. They are of every size. Some are named; some are undiscovered. They are beautiful. They eat. They reproduce. They exist. Scientists are fascinated by them and children will be too throughout the pages of this lovely book. They can study them and touch the pictures and not be hurt. 2000, The Millbrook Press, Ages 5 up, $21.90. Reviewer: Margarette Reid—Children's Literature
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Gorgeous full-color underwater photos and a simple, readable text provide a fascinating introduction to some little-known and often unheralded marine organisms. Less detailed than Elizabeth Gowell's equally spectacular Sea Jellies (Watts, 1993; o.p.), George's informative narrative presents these gelatinous wanderers as mindless entities mostly at the mercy of tides and currents, opportunistic in their encounters with other marine food sources, and astonishing in their wide variety. For detailed data on reproduction or nematocysts, students will need to consult Gowell's title, but for novices meeting these insubstantial, fluid invertebrates for the first time, this colorful, attractive book will entice and inform.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.

    Freelance Reviewer for Midwest Book Review

    I picked this book because my children and I did not know much about jellyfish. This book is wonderfully photographed and George's factual text really make this book a must read for adults who share nature books with children or for children to enjoy alone. As a scuba diver I have seen a few jellyfish in the wild but never the assortment in this book. Jellyfish are amazing animals and George does an excellent job getting this information across to the reader. JELLIES is an excellent non-fiction picture book for children under 8. Twig C. George has other books out with ocean nature themes. They are fiction books for juveniles called A DOLPHIN NAMED BOB and SWIMMING WITH SHARKS. A. D. Tarbox, author of ALREADY ASLEEP (Oct. 2006)
