Review by Stacey

The Search for the Giant Arctic Jellyfish is an absolute joy of a book that is both beautiful and amusing.

We meet Dr Morley and her crew who have sailed to the North Pole to find and research the Giant Arctic Jellyfish. Dr Morley has wanted to discover the jellyfish for years and now she has the best chance as she has the best equipment and crew. However, the jellyfish is more cunning than the doctor ever imagined.

I adored this book. I did wonder if it was based on real events when I began but with no mention at the back about a real expedition it must just be a story, though there really is a Giant Arctic Jellyfish.

The pages are filled with adorable images that feature the crew and many different animals found in the arctic, and usually a jellyfish hiding under or behind something. The jellyfish made me giggle as she teased the crew to her whereabouts.

Overall, The Search for the Giant Arctic Jellyfish is an incredible book. It has a calming, wintery, magical feel to it and was such a delight to read.
