Description

Almost fifty years ago, Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring" awakened the consciousness of an entire generation by bringing to light the harmful effects of DDT and other toxic chemicals; she forever changed the way people view the natural world. In "The World Without Fish", bestselling author Mark Kurlansky issues a similar call to action to kids ages 10 and up - the next generation to inherit the earth - by outlining what will happen within the next fifty years if the ill effects of over-fishing, pollution, and climate change aren't addressed soon. In clear language that kids will understand, Kurlansky gives a step-by-step account of what would happen if fish became extinct - and then outlines a plan for remedying the situation. As an extra bonus, this book includes a fifteen-page graphic novel (each page is a chapter opener) that tells the fictional story of the daughter of a marine biologist who witnesses the slow extinction of the world's fish in her lifetime.
