Imaginations will come to life as the authors pose silly but logical questions that might occur to a young child: "Do seahorses wear saddles?" "Do pilot whales hang out in airports?" "Do mussels work out at the gym?" "Do sea lions roar?" A page turn offers the answers ("No!"), along with actual facts about how these incredible creatures survive in their ocean home. Delightful wordplay, laugh-out-loud questions, and interesting information combine perfectly with expressive, comical, and accurate illustrations depicting creatures such as lampreys, trumpet fish, and, of course, jellyfish. Extra info about the ocean and the featured animals is included along with further discussion about the threats they are facing. A fun and accessible introduction to some amazing sea creatures, sure to get young readers interested in oceans and their preservation.

School Library Journal Review

Do Jellyfish Like Peanut Butter? : Amazing Sea Creature Facts

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 3--Playful questions are proposed for a series of sea creatures, focusing on wordplay, and then followed by a contrasting fact. Illustrations feature animals in a silly scenario ("Do trumpet fish play in marching bands?") followed by depictions of the animals in their natural environment. Although the science content is interesting for readers up to grade three, the brief text and soft, colorful drawings make this title better suited for younger readers. The repeated pattern of a silly question followed by a reliable "No!" and succinct, easily digestible information would be ideal for reading out loud in a storytime or classroom setting. The "What's in the Sea" section at the end of the book features more detailed information and a photograph of each of the animals mentioned in the text. A glossary, further reading list, and resources are all missing. VERDICT This whimsical look at sea creatures is a light but charming science read-aloud for younger kids.--Savannah Kitchens, Parnell Memorial Library, Montevallo, AL
