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.

Having spent my life and career at the ocean, including a stint on a commercial fishing ship, I now am a mid-continent dweller that buys fish at the grocery store. I have a rounded perspective on the subject matter - and I believe this book is important reading for kids and adults. I've seen the impacts that Kurlansky clearly and fairly describes. Kurlansky not only tells the reader where we are, how we got here, and the paths from here, but also how we can follow a path that leads to a future that our children's children's children can embrace. It is an engaging read for kids and adults, and I recommend it for the coffee table for any coastal resort, beach house, fishing resort, or home library. In fact, I am buying 10 copies to leave here and there when I travel in the Caribbean.

This book is great for a young scientist or avid reader who wants to read something, be entertained by the story, and learn some key concepts about science. Great for struggling readers too. This book would be great in a classroom to help students see the cause and effect relationship of humans on our world, as well as helping students see that their opinion and thoughts matter. Consumerism is also touched in this book along with graphic novel pages to summarize each chapter and help synthesize student's knowledge before moving to the next chapter.

Excellent book on the important of our oceans and the world within. Sage advice which we all should follow. I don't understand why it is considered a children's book, unless the author feels they are the only audience that will listen.

In my usual preview of gifts for my 12-yr-old grandson, I became engrossed in reading this excellent depiction of this specific problem of climate change. My grandson sped through it once and then began re-reading it again. He was also excited to share it with his science teacher. Finally, two friends of my daughter's, who are researchers in water ecology, visited over the holidays, saw the book, and became excited enough to get their own copies. An excellent introduction to the complex issues of ecology for middle-schoolers and above.

Great read. As a teacher I highly recommend this book as it covers quite a lot of topics from genetics to ecology. Fun and modern print plus cartoons keeps the reader engaged.
I absolutely love this book. Great information, aesthetically pleasing pages & layouts, easy to read and understand even for my 7 year old. Everyone should read this and everyone should share this with their children. This book is fantastic!
