The Cod's Tale Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

* “Accessible to middle-grade readers…The Cods Tale considers how the cod fits into human history. 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

Would you believe that it was a fish?

 

The cod!
