Review:

Praise for The Cod's Tale, Contributing enormously to the book's visual appeal, Schindler's 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 A welcome and intriguing addition to library shelves. School Library Journal Kurlansky is a masterful storyteller. Schindler's pictures, from serious to silly, add to the pleasure. Readers of this title will never again look at fish and chips in quite the same way. Kirkus Reviews Breezy, kid-friendly prose. Fascinating and informative . bound to hook young readers. The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books --Various
