Panama City Beach mom, daughter write kid’s book on aquatic critters

A mother-daughter duo has launched a book to teach children about Panama City Beach sea creatures with educational facts and unique illustrations.

“Aquatic Critters A to Z, Along the Shores of PCB,” is a children’s book that focuses on marine life found along Panama City Beach and illustrates each critter made from fused glass.

Local glass artist Marlene East authored the story and created the glass animals, while her daughter, Allie Anderson, created the book’s graphic design. The pair published the book Sept. 1.

East wanted to write a children’s book and decided to create something that reminded her of the days she spends with her children and grandchildren in her hometown. As a longtime glass artist, she wanted to incorporate her skill into the book’s illustrations to give it a unique design.
