Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Summer 2011 Kids' Next List
“This book, part narrative, part graphic novel, should be read by everyone from middle school to adult! Kurlansky, a former commercial fisherman, is the author of the very popular non-fiction books Cod and Salt. He knows the ocean and speaks for all species, including humans, as he appeals to all of us to know where the fish on our plate come from. He weaves ecology, evolution, human history, as well as human folly, together in a format that is both accessible and compelling.”
-- Dianne Patrick, Snowbound Books, Marquette, MI

Kurlansky, beloved author of the award-winning bestseller "Cod: A Biography of the Fish That Changed the World," offers a riveting new book for kids about what's happening to fish, the oceans, and our environment. Interwoven with the book is a 12-page, full-color graphic novel. Full color.
