'Somebody Swallowed Stanley' is a beautifully illustrated children's picture book with a powerful and clear message about plastic pollution from environmental expert Sarah Roberts'. - "Plastic bags don't belong in the sea!" 

Everybody has a taste for Stanley - and the other ocean creatures just keep mistaking him for a delicious treat - but this is no ordinary jellyfish. Most jellyfish have dangly-gangly tentacles, but Stanley has two handles... Other jellyfish have a magical glow, but Stanley has stripes... Because Stanley (spoiler alert) is a plastic bag!

With bright & lively illustrations by Hannah Peck and rhythmic and repetitive text this simple and effective read aloud story is the perfect gift for (pre-school) budding environmentalists to begin to learn about the issues of plastic in our oceans and help little ones understand the environmental threats posed by plastic pollution.  

About the author: Eco-expert Sarah Roberts has worked in conservation all around the world. With large amounts of plastic spreading into remote ecosystems and food chains, Sarah is on a mission to help children understand the issues: "If children aren't aware, how can they protect their favourite places and the awesome creatures who live there?"
