Obviously for the fans

If you're one of the people below complaining about the lack of real information in this book, why would you even think about raising sea monkeys? Susan has spent quite a few years working on her website, "Sea Monkey Worship", and if you were a frequent visitor like myself, you would have bought this book knowing what to expect from it.


All the inner children whose parents wouldn't let them send away for the Sea Monkeys advertised in the back comics should definitely treat themselves to this book. Ms. Barclay shares a treasure-trove of research and her reverence for nostalgia with a writing style that is both clever and funny. Highly recommended!

Fascinating! Who Would Have Thought?

Susan Barclay's brilliant work was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Non-Fiction. It is easy to see why. Barclay reveals many new details about these diminutive aquatic creatures. Truth is indeed stranger and more wonderful than fiction. For example, female sea monkeys do NOT have blonde hair tied up with red bows! They wear dreadlocks! Sea Monkeys are egalitarian by nature and disdain the plastic castle included with their aquarium! During the 60's the Sea Monkeys experimented with mind altering drugs and free love! Sea Monkeys are environmentalists and formed their own Green Peace chapters! The section on "Sea Monkey Practical Jokes" is laugh out loud funny! Most surprising was the Epilogue, where Barclay shares here Sea Monkey recipes. Although Sea Monkeys are never a main course, they are excellent sprinkled on salads, pizza and popcorn. [YUM!!!]
