Product Details


Everything works in this book— the informative yet humorous writing, the not-too-scary illustrations, and a superb layout that employs multisized text and bright color backgrounds to great effect.
—The Horn Book

The book is chock-full of fascinating information about ‘sharkish’ behavior . . . Davis concludes with a notion that these animals have much more to fear from humans than vice versa.
—School Library Journal

Rarely do author and illustrator complement each other as perfectly as in this undersea jewel . . . the package can’t be beat.
—Kirkus Reviews

Davies manages to impart a remarkable amount of information about sharks in this picture-book science volume. . . . What’s more, Croft’s bright, humorous artwork . . . and the clever layout will make this a first choice for many young children.
