Dive beneath the waves and explore the amazing world of the jellyfish with this fact-filled book for middle grade readers who can’t get enough about marine animals!

The second title in the Amazing Ocean series is just as mind-blowing, inspiring and full of irreverent fun as the first.

Children will learn about the astonishing variety of species, including some extremely dangerous ones, some types with truly amazing abilities, how scientists have been inspired by these mysterious dwellers of the deep in developing new technology, and much more… Along the way there is also plenty of opportunity for entertaining and mind-expanding digressions into other topics, including astrophysics, immortality and ancient mythology. This isn’t just a book to teach children about jellyfish, but one to fill them with wonder and curiosity for the natural world.

All this is stunningly illustrated, in b&w and sepia original artwork throughout, packed in a textured self cover hardback with foil areas  on the cover. Both text and artwork are also highlighted with colored ink to highlight important elenents. Each chapter ends with interactive summaries of the topics addressed, including games and creative exercises, to keep kids engaged and entertained as they learn.
