As a society of talking fish, crabs, seahorses, and other denizens of the tank deals with rising temperatures, each species is driven by different needs and interests, so their responses vary in ways parallel to real-world responses. "Fish Tank is the Animal Farm for our times," says Dr. Pete Coppolillo, ecologist. A teacher’s edition (150 pages) includes a discussion guide with 140 questions about political issues, public policy, the environment, morality, and ethics as well as literary issues like character and allegory. The large question-set allows teachers to tailor lessons according to class focus, teaching goals, and student age.
