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 ofoverfishing, pollution, and climate change aren't addressed soon. In clear language that kids will understand, Kurlanskygives a step-by-step account of what would happen if fish became extinct-and then outlines a plan for remedying thesituation.As an extra bonus, the book includes a fifteen-page graphic novel (each page is a chapter opener) that tells thefictional story of the daughter of a marine biologist who witnesses the slow extinction of the world's fish in her lifetime.

Mark Kurlansky is the author of The Basque History of the World, the New York Times bestseller Cod: A Biography of the Fish that Changed the World (among the New York Public Library's Best Books of the Year in 1998), as well as A Chosen Few: The Resurrection of European Jewry; A Continent of Islands: Searching for the Caribbean Destiny, and several acclaimed works of short fiction and journalism about the Caribbean. He spent seven years as the Caribbean correspondent for the Chicago Tribune. He lives in New York City.
