This non fiction picture book guides us through effects of ghost fishing in a narrative way, helping us learn about the species affected by this destructive issue whilst inspiring us with ways we can help. The effects of ghost fishing
still do not seem to be common knowledge, but with it making up almost 50% of the plastic in our oceans, it is something that needs to be brought to our attention so we can create change. The information is clear and concise
in a visual way and will open a space for children to begin a conversation with adults to create action.
