Informative, easy-to-read, and just a great book for tweens. World Without Fish looks at the history, the present, and the future reality of our waters and the creatures that live within them. It explores the various reasons they are in their present dilemma, and what it would mean if they were to be depleted further. The author uses a conversational style to make the book accessible, and different fonts, colours, and sizes within the text to give it a voice, and impart the urgent nature of this predicament. Art, short comic strips, and photos are displayed on many of the pages. These enhance our understanding, and ability to relate to the denizens of the deep. The health of our oceans has a direct impact on our own well-being, so this is a good one to share.

It carefully explains how we've botched our approach to the oceans so far, and how terrible it will be for all of us if we don't learn to get it right. My opinion? Let's stop fishing, and allow the ecosystem to right itself. The author's opinion differs...
