A World Without Fish, and What You (and Your Kids) Can Do to Change That

World Without Fish provides modern stories about the destruction of the ocean ecosystem (the book’s release coincides with one-year anniversary of the Gulf oil spill). He explains, in considerable historical detail, what we’ve done to imperil fish, what the decline of fish means for the entire ocean ecosystem, and what needs to change. It doesn’t exactly sound like kid stuff, hitting serious and seriously devastating problems—pollution, bycatch, and trawling—so it’s somewhat of a relief that Frank Stockton provided illustrations and comic panels to make the message more accessible (although his hand-drawn lettering sometimes seems a little melodramatic.
