Jelly-Boy

What happens when a jellyfish falls in love with a plastic bags 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 open up an important dialogue.

Written by Nicole Godwin, illustrated by Christopher Nielsen and read by Laurence Boxhall
