Terrific Tuesday

Peanut Butter and Jellyfish by Jarrett J. Krosoczka is a total first-rate story.  Peanut Butter is a seahorse and Jellyfish is a jellyfish.  They have so much fun exploring the ocean together as best friends.  Crabby, a grumpy crab that is always insulting them. But one day Crabby gets caught in a trap and Peanut Butter and Jellyfish are off to the rescue.  They save Crabby and make a new friend.
The illustrations were created using digital collage of acrylic paintings.  It looks a lot like fingerpainting and collage.  I love the colorful friendly art and the two good friends that save the day.  I hope there are more stories in the works about Peanut Butter and Jellyfish.
