Product Details


“[T]his salutary…micro-history will have young readers lifting their shakers in tribute.”
Kirkus Reviews, *starred review*

“Kurlansky uses salt as the lens through which to present a new perspective on history. [T]he author mixes science, history, and personal anecdotes, resulting in a fascinating look at this amazing substance. Schindler’s humorously detailed pen-and-ink drawings with colorful washes enliven the narrative and help to convey the wealth of information in the text. A lively and well-researched title, with exemplary art.”
School Library Journal, *starred review*
