A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month June 2017 Mix up a jellyfish and a dolphin and what do you get? A jolphin – and a very curious creature it looks too. And a whale and a jellyfish which becomes a whellyfish is pretty odd too. Axel Scheffler’s ocean creatures start out just as they should but some fun mixing up of the split pages makes them into something very different. Enjoy 121 Flip Flap variations in this fun look at sea creatures. ~ Julia Eccleshare

The Editor at Nosy Crow says: “The fifth book in this ever-popular series is just as hilarious as the ones before it. The split pages together with Axel’s animals are a winning formula that all the family will enjoy! Who knew there could be so much silliness under the sea!"
