Great Story

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2013-04-05) Good Permalink

Loved the illustrations of fish on the inside covers when I opened the book. The story and facts at the end are tremendous; much better, I feel than the illustrations through out the book. People just don't look real.
