About the Story

Jellyfish is quietly crooning in the shallows, when knife-nosed Swordfish swooshes, races and chases her, down, down, down, deep into the dark blue sea.
At that moment, stealthy Squid stretches a tentacle, tussling and tossing Swordfish in the darkness.
Who will help Swordfish? He makes a last wish. . .

A captivating bedtime story by award-winning picture book creator Ruth Paul, with luminous and eye-catching illustrations. The language is evocative of the deep blue sea, and readers will love the clever way that Jellyfish gets the better of hungry Swordfish.

Read sweetly by performer, Akina Edmonds, I Am Jellyfish is a delightfully funny story and is also the Winner of the Best Picture Book category of the New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults 2018


*included in the NSW Premier's Reading Challenge K-2 list.
