For fans of Ryan T. Higgins and Jory John comes a humorous and “splashy” story from a former Disney animator, about a jellyfish with an identity crisis who learns how to be himself with a little help from friends.
Edgar is a jellyfish, but he doesn’t look, act, or feel very much like a “fish.” With a little help though from some friendly starfish, Edgar realizes that labels aren’t important, and he should celebrate what makes him unique!
Peter Raymundo was 21 years old when he went to work for Walt Disney Studios as part of their Feature Animation Division. There he drew (and drew and drew) for films such as <i>Tarzan, Lilo & Stitch</i> and <i>Mulan</i>. Besides <i>I Am Not a Fish, </i> Pete is also the author-illustrator of the picture book<i> The Monkey and the Bee</i>, as well as the Third Grade Mermaid chapter book series. Pete draws inspiration from the ocean and says it gives him “an endless backdrop for fun and meaningful stories.” He and his family live in Celebration, Florida.
