Alba and the Ocean Cleanup
A Story About Saving Our Oceans

author: Lara Hawthorne

Alba the fish has spent her entire life collecting precious objects that drift down to the ocean floor. Each year on her birthday, she gathers one more precious item, from delicate shells to brightly colored coral. As time goes by, Alba notices her collection is losing its sparkle. What’s more, there is trash everywhere! When, on her birthday hunt, something unthinkable happens, it seems like the plastic may have changed her ocean home forever. Is it too late? Alba and the Ocean Cleanup is a beautifully illustrated picture book about what we can do to save this important ecosystem, now available in paperback.

"The simple story and bright pictures underscore the importance of taking care of our ocean."—Kirkus Reviews
