Gordy graduated with a first class degree in illustration from the University of the West of England and lives in Bristol.


★ "[A] clear, logical, and fascinating combination of natural and industrial. . . ."--The Horn Book, Starred Review

★ "[A] fanfare-worthy true story. . . . Matching the subtle poetry of Stremer's writing is Wright's gouache and acrylic art, which juxtaposes the ship's rugged, industrial look with that of colorful, relatively delicate sea creatures."--Shelf Awareness, Starred Review

"The straightforward narrative is concise but informative, conveying details of the boat's transformation along with blunt facts about a dying marine environment. Full spreads of gouache and acrylic illustrations emphasize the enormity of the ship as it stretches across the pages. . . ."--The Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books

"This unique title with generous back matter will appeal to environmentalists and big-boat enthusiasts alike."--Booklist

"Recycling at its best."--Kirkus Reviews
