Jeremiah Jellyfish Flies High!
Publisher: Andersen Press
Fardell’s second picturebook is as entertaining as his award-winning first, with a humorous text ably supported by the detailed, lively illustrations.
Bored with just drifting in the ocean with the rest of his shoal, Jeremiah sets out to see the world, and exchanges places with a high-flying businessman who wants a rest, before each is happy to return to their original way of life, offering a reassuring resolution for explorative young readers.
Set in a futuristic world of exotic settings, monorails and high-rise buildings, Fardell’s land images provide many opportunities for young readers to explore each one for their intricate detail. By contrast, the ocean spills across the spreads in restful expanses of green, populated by sea-creatures and jellyfishermen!
