Garbage Guts Aria the Albatross and her seabird friends have a problem: They keep throwing up garbage. When she sets out on a long-distance flight across the Pacific Ocean to find out why, she meets other wildlife having trouble with trash. Monk Seal is trapped by a strapping band, Humpback Whale is hopelessly tangled in a ghost fishing net, and Sea Turtle is choking on a plastic bag he thought was a jellyfish. Once-beautiful beaches, reefs and open oceans are littered by discarded fishing gear, disposable lighters, plastic bags and bottle caps, creating unimaginable hazards for the creatures that live there. As Aria learns, humans are both the cause-and the solution-to the ever-increasing problem of marine pollution. With its imagery-laden prose, emotional poetry, and delightful illustrations, Garbage Guts becomes a call for action to preserve some of our planet's most fragile habitats for the wildlife that depends on them. Author Bio Dr. Heidi Auman, a pioneer in the research of plastic ingestion, has studied human effects on seabirds for twenty-five years. She lived on Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge in the middle of the Pacific Ocean for seven years studying Laysan albatross and marine debris and contaminants, finding that more than 97 percent of the birds had ingested plastic trash, often many handfuls of it. Heidi also has documented chemical pollutants in Great Lakes birds, effects of junk food on urban gulls and plastic ingestion in subantarctic and Tasmanian seabirds. Heidi was raised in Michigan and has studied birds around the world, and she now lives in a nest of her own with her husband, James, in Tasmania. Although she has published many scientific journal articles, this passionate researcher wanted to write a book aimed at younger readers in hopes they would take up the cause and promote solutions to this global ecological issue.

A great foreword is more than just a few pages of self-indulgent frippery that comes before a book. A great foreword adds zest. It sets the stage for the page turner you’re about to open, and perhaps even puts you in the locked room where a mystery happens or in the high-button shoes of a year gone by. A great foreword—sometimes—is even better than the book it precedes.  So why not skip the boring actual-book part?  Moving Foreword is a collection of introductions to imaginary books, written by real celebrities, comedians, musicians, and other writers with something to say. With a real foreword by Rainn Wilson, this book offers a no-holds-barred cacophony of laugh-out-loud funny, poignant, and thought-provoking writing that tackles everything from politics to pop culture, true crime to trout fishing, and Star Wars to skin flicks. Highlights include: Bustin’ Through: Confessions of a Kool-Aid Man Foreword by “Pop Candy” columnist Whitney Matheson  Phil Rosenthal’s Who’s the Boss?: My Unlikely Rise to Rock Stardom Foreword by “Bruce Springsteen” (Phil Rosenthal) Keep Your Gaze on Me: A True Story of Social Media, Obsession, and Murder Foreword by Shirley Manson, lead vocalist of Garbage  Sock Puppet Mozart: The Life and Gruesome Death of Randy Masterson Foreword by actor Thomas Lennon Vance DeGeneris: An Unauthorized Biography Foreword by Vance DeGeneres  Everything You Need to Know About Massachusetts Fish and Wildlife Regulations Foreword by New Kids on the Block member Jonathan Knight Fly Ball: How the New York Yankees Have Changed Lives Foreword by talk show host Jerry Springer Terrible Band Names: A Chronology of Rock History Foreword by John Ondrasik, a.k.a. Five for Fighting God’s Wow, You’re All F***ing This Up Big Time Foreword by singer-songwriter Mary Lambert    . . . any many more!
