Synopsis

After discovering that a group of ferrets is called a business, Sarah Asper-Smith became fascinated with the intersection of language and the natural world. Using bold prints overlaid on vibrant colors, she created Have You Ever Seen a Smack of Jellyfish? to chronicle the poetic words used to describe the magnificent animal kingdom. From a knot of frogs to a watch of nightingales, the book takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the alphabet with animals as their guide, starting with an army of ants, and ending with a zeal of zebras. The color illustrations and playful use of language will appeal to readers of all ages.

"Have You Ever Seen a Smack of Jellyfish? has been a fun new addition to our collection of picture books. I love learning what all the groups of animals are called. So interesting! This would be a cute ABC book for your budding naturalist."
—Design Mom

"The hook here is as much the artwork as the text. Asper-Smith uses silhouettes for the words and animals on each page while bright colors provide the backgrounds. ...Asper-Smith has made something beautiful here, giving preschoolers a collection of thoughtful terms and animals to learn about and graphic arts fans something to appreciate. Have You Seen a Smack of Jellyfish? is the book that readers of A Compendium of Collective Nouns will learn their first big words from. Both are crisp and witty walks on the wild side of the English language, and along with all the other titles discussed here, they prompt the question: 'Who knew learning could be so cool?'"
