Just before Christmas in 1938, the young woman curator of a small South African museum spotted a strange-looking fish in a trawler's catch. It was five feet long, with steel-blue scales, luminescent eyes and remarkable limb-like fins, unlike those of any fish she had ever seen. Determined to preserve her unusual find, she searched for days for a way to save it, but ended up with only the skin and a few bones. A charismatic amateur ichthyologist, J. L. B. Smith, saw a thumbnail sketch of the fish and was thunderstruck. He recognised it as a coelacanth (pronounced 'seel-la-kanth'), a creature known from fossils dating back 400 million years and thought to have died out with the dinosaurs. With its extraordinary limbs, the coelacanth was believed to be the first fish to crawl from the sea and evolve into reptiles, mammals and eventually mankind. The discovery was immediately dubbed the 'greatest scientific find of the century.'

"An engrossing tale of obsession, adventure and scientific reasoning." —Betty Ann Kevles, Los Angeles Times In the winter of 1938, a fishing boat by chance dragged from the Indian Ocean a fish thought extinct for 70 million years. It was a coelacanth, which thrived concurrently with dinosaurs and pterodactyls—an animal of major importance to those who study the history of vertebrate life. Living Fossil describes the life and habitat of the coelcanth and what scientists have learned about it during fifty years of research. It is an exciting and very human story, filled with ambitious and brilliant people, that reveals much about the practice of modern science.

An original tale in which a poor stranger instructs a king. A stranger comes to a village carrying only a fishing pole. Each time he dips his line into water, he pulls out a fish. He gives away every fish, saying, "One person, one fish." The king of the land learns of this man and thinks that the stranger will surely catch him a basketful of fish. After all, he is the king. Doesn't a king deserve more than one fish a day? But the stranger has a different idea. Walter Lyon Krudop's clever story is enhanced by exquisite paintings that bring to life a long-ago Thailand and a timeless theme, the consequences of pride.
