I recently wrote a book review for Chicago Animal Advocacy on a unique and inspirational book titled Wild Ocean: Sharks, Whales, Rays, and other Endangered Sea Creatures. It is an anthology of 12 stories that are factual, yet have a touch of whimsy about 12 endangered species of sea animals. I was so struck by this collaborative effort of 17 cartoonists and writers I wanted to share it with the audience of Max A Pooch's Awesome Animal Advocates and I contacted Matt Dembicki the editor of Wild Ocean so he could share why he started this project and tell us more about this fascinating book.
