Product Details

Praise

★ “[A] clear, logical, and fascinating combination of natural and industrial. . . .”—The Horn Book, Starred Review

★ “[A] fanfare-worthy true story. . . . Matching the subtle poetry of Stremer’s writing is Wright’s gouache and acrylic art, which juxtaposes the ship’s rugged, industrial look with that of colorful, relatively delicate sea creatures.”—Shelf Awareness, Starred Review

“The straightforward narrative is concise but informative, conveying details of the boat’s transformation along with blunt facts about a dying marine environment. Full spreads of gouache and acrylic illustrations emphasize the enormity of the ship as it stretches across the pages. . . .”—The Bulletin for the Center of Children’s Books
 
“This unique title with generous back matter will appeal to environmentalists and big-boat enthusiasts alike.”—Booklist

“Recycling at its best.”—Kirkus Reviews
