My latest book, Presley’s First Day of Fishing, off the press this week, is the fourth book in my Tales From Pelican Cove series, portraying nature and the spectacular shorebirds of Florida and beyond.  Presley is a juvenile brown pelly out fishing for the first time all by myself!  The story is a heartwarming educational and entertaining tale about Presley and a laughing gull that steals his first fish.  I learned many things about pellies that I didn’t know before writing this book.  For instance, did you know that brown pelicans are different from white pelicans because they dive and scoop their fish, while white pellies herd the fish into an area and then fan them to the surface where they are easily caught and eaten.  Also I learned that pelicans like Presley twist their bodies just before they sploosh into the water – Presley forgot to twist the first time he dove and ended up in a bellyflop that hurt him and his pride.  Presley is available at Principia.com or at my website www.janethasselbring.com  “I love the house where you live, O Lord; the place where your glory dwells.”  Psalm 26:8
