Children Ages 8+ • 1 hr. • Unabridged • © 2001

Just as he does in the adult version of this title, COD, Kurlansky chronicles the unassuming cod through centuries of swimming in the North Atlantic, as well as the history of exploration and colonization of the area. He salts the text with recipes and his firm conviction that responsibility for the future of the cod and humankind rests with each of us. John McDonough shares the tale with well-timed pacing that allows the listener to assimilate the extensive information. His expressive voice underscores the excitement or worry of the people involved with the fish at each juncture. In addition, McDonough describes illustrations, diagrams, and charts contained in the book. A true listening treat would be listening to this recording with the print edition in hand.
