Set in Puget Sound’s Commencement Bay, herrings, seabirds and jellyfish join in the play in amusement park fantasy. Nigel, a non-native pelican, mixes it up with cormorants, in a roller coaster set of events, while in pursuit of his favorite food -- anchovies. Dangerous encounters with humans, poisonous jellyfish, a little magic, culminate in a rewarding career as a restaurateur and toy game designer! Nigel wanted to share his story with one of his board game creations where magic herrings, as avatars, play rummy games.
