World With­out Fish | Ages 11+ Mark Kurlan­sky, il­lus­trated by Frank Stock­ton (Workham Pub­lish­ing)

Canadian Wildlife - - OUTDOORS -

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.
