David McLimans won the Caldecott Honor for his first book Gone Wild: An Endangered Animal Alphabet, and has won numerous other awards for his editorial illustration. His work has appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, Harper's and Time. David lives in Madison, Wisconsin.
Grade 3–5—Using animal-shaped numbers from 1 to 10 and back again, McLimans introduces various marine creatures and their survival status. An African penguin, sea lamprey, tiger tail sea horse, and blue-ringed octopus are among the featured species. The text boxes accompanying each entry are not offset as distinctly as they were in the author's Gone Wild (Walker, 2006), so viewers are not sure where to look first. The boxes include the class to which each marine animal belongs, its habitat, aquatic region, threats, and status ("vulnerable," "endangered," and "critically endangered"), but the terms are not defined. Between the count up and count down is a spread of "Ocean Facts by the Numbers," which presents various statistics in the power of 10. For example, "Less than 1 percent of water on Earth is freshwater," "Plastic waste kills up to 1 million seabirds every year," and "About 1 billion people live in coastal urban centers, and the resulting overdevelopment threatens almost 50 percent of the world's coastal habitats." The black silhouetted numbers are sinuous and compelling in this unique and imaginative description of the dangers facing ocean life today.—Frances E. Millhouser, formerly at Chantilly Regional Library, Fairfax County, VA
