Duck, 28,800 Bath Toys Lost at Sea

 Duck
We found this duck in the Medici Fountain at the Luxembourg garden in Paris
But   28,800 toy ducks were lost at sea

Illustration by Mark Pernice
for the New York Times
Are the subject of a new Book
MOBY-DUCK

The True Story of 28,800 Bath Toys Lost at Sea and of the Beachcombers, Oceanographers, Environmentalists, and Fools, Including the Author, Who Went in Search of Them

By Donovan Hohn

402 pp. Viking. $27.95.

The same event inspired this book a number of years ago

A wonderful book review in the New York Times brought this book to my attention. Plastic pollution at sea is not cute even if the ducks are. This film is great it is narrated by Jeramey Irons.
