What’s Your Favorite Sea Creature?


A book byte…

THE THING ABOUT JELLYFISH by Ali Benjamin, Little, Brown & Company  2015

The first place I visit in an aquarium is the jellyfish tank. They mesmerize me. I am not the only one affected this way, apparently.

Suzy Swanson is in 7th grade, grieving the loss of her best friend in more ways than one. As the story unfolds, the reader sees that Suzy’s best friend left many months before, long before her sudden drowning. This is about grief and growing through and up because of it.

You will learn a lot about jellyfish, among other things.

A quote from this book will always be with me: “We are made of stardust.”

  1. "We are made of stardus," is a powerful thought, Joan.

    Just reading about your interest in jellyfish makes me thing of their
    undulations. Thanks for the tip off to THE THING ABOUT JELLYFISH.
