All in all, it’s a book that ought to leave many readers fascinated—and perhaps a little unsettled—by the diversity of sharks that exist beneath the waves.
An inviting format to spark shark discussions.
These concrete poems about a selection of sharks will tickle the fins of many an aspiring marine biologist…The digital illustrations, glossy and brightly colored, are just cartoonish enough to dispel any fears young readers may have about the subject.
Brown begins this playful and illuminating collection by taking a bite out of the most infamous of these ocean predators, the great white shark…This book offers an accessible and engaging appreciation of these fascinating creatures. Pair with Nicola Davies’s Surprising Sharks (rev. 1/04)…though maybe not at the beach.
