World Without Fish | Ages 11+ Mark Kurlansky, illustrated by Frank Stockton (Workham Publishing)
This non-fiction graphic novel crossover is a perfect example of how new media can bring messages to young minds in a fresh way. World Without Fish lays out the concepts of overfishing, pollution and climate change with a clarity befitting its young teen audience. While there isn’t an overarching unified story throughout, the interspersed comics keep interest high while packing a lot of information in. Not surprising from an author of multiple bestselling non-fiction works for adults.
