Have you ever thought about what the world might be like in the future? No one knows exactly what the future holds, but the authors of this book have done some research and talked to scientists, engineers, and 'futurists' to create a view of tomorrow. From a computer that translates a dog's barks and body movements into words to 'talk' to its owner to broccoli spears that taste like French fries to eco-friendly cars that drive themselves, this book paints an interesting picture of what life might be like for kids in the future. How old will you be in 2030? Grab this book, settle in, and take a trip to 2030.

The buccaneer bunnies who sail the Salty Carrot are bad, bad bunnies indeed. Barnacle Black Ear, the captain, is the baddest of them all, but his son Henry is a disappointment. Henry would rather read than shout, 'Shiver Me Timbers!' or make prisoners walk the plank. None of the pirates appreciate Henry's love for books until the Salty Carrot is lost in a sudden storm and they need Henry's knowledge to survive.
