From <em>Conference of the Birds,</em> by Peter Sis, published by Penguin Press

The giant garbage patch in the Pacific ocean grows larger each year, and Captain Charles Moore, who discovered the floating mass of trash, tells how all that plastic got there and what we can do about it. Fanae Aaron and chef Marc Murphy of Landmarc explain how to get your kids to eat their vegetables. Illustrator Peter Sis talks about his adaptation of a classic 12th-century Sufi epic poem. Plus on Underreported, we look at the government’s underestimation of radiation exposure in the screening process at airports.
