Amazing Jellies
Favor Johnson
Amazing Jellies presents an entertaining and authoritative look into the little-known world of what we commonly, but incorrectly, have known as jellyfish. Jellies are among the most beautiful and unusual animals on earth. They are found in all the oceans of the world and even in some freshwater lakes and rivers.

They come in all sizes, from 3mm to 12 feet across and 100 feet long. They are 95 percent water, with a little bit of prote in, oil, and salt. Jellies have lived on the earth for millions of years, and their fossils have been found in rocks 650 million years old. They have no brain, no liver, no kidneys, no heart, no lungs, or gills. They do not need blood, have no eyes, nose or tongue. They can be lethal and are nearly always beautiful.

Disappearing Giants: The North Atlantic Right Whale was our first collaboration with The New England Aquarium, and with the same depth and clarity, Amazing Jellies provides the reader with a thorough understanding of jellies andtheir role in the ocean. The book takes advantage of the most recent research into jellies, with a chapter based on a special exhibit at the New England Aquarium also titled "Amazing Jellies." Beautiful color photographs accompany a clearly written and wide-ranging text.

Since I was two the book, ‘Twas the Night before Christmas’ by Clement Clark Moore has been a part of my fondest holiday memories. Whether I am reading it aloud to eager little ears or somebody is giving me the pleasure of listening to it, it really puts me in the mood for the season. Our new book, ‘Favor Johnson’ coming out this September is going to give readers as well as listeners the same pleasurable experiences. It is a delightful story of loving and giving that epitomizes what the holiday season should be all about. In many ways life is moving much too fast these days and we have lost track of what is really important. This story of the wonderful old Vermont farmer, Favor Johnson, told by Willem Lange and beautifully illustrated by Bert Dodson, will help us slow down and savor the true values of Christmas.
