Stanley is no ordinary jellyfish. Of course he is actually a plastic bag. We follow him on a journey, meeting different creatures, giving lots of opportunities for discussions of impact. Just one bag can affect many marine animals.

The story draws you along with its gentle rhyme and questions. Young readers will interact with the tale. The name and identity of the bag make it personal, make it real. This gives the eco message a real kick for young readers.

Thankfully, this story has a happy ending, just suggesting what could happen to creatures instead of them having sad outcomes.

This is a simple tale that will help EYFS and KS1 classrooms tackle a difficult problem.
