As he did with The Story of Salt, Mark Kurlansky here takes one of his fascinating books for grownups about how food shaped our world—in this case Cod: A Biography of the Fish That Changed the World—and adapts it into an equally fascinating picture book for readers 8 to 11.

"The book begins with a biological perspective, explaining the life cycle and natural enemies of the cod, including the one species that threatens its very existence: man…. Contributing enormously to the book's visual appeal, [S.D.] Schindler's excellent ink drawings, brightened with colorful washes, illustrate incidents from the text with clarity, a flair for the dramatic, and a sense of humor."—Booklist (starred review)
