Surprising Sharks : Read and Wonder

Description

"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 "SHAAAARRRKK!" That's probably the last word anyone wants to hear while swimming in the warm blue sea. But most sharks aren't at all what people expect. In fact, those who think all sharks are giant, man-eating killers are in for a surprise. The compelling narrative, colorful illustrations, and captivating facts in SURPRISING SHARKS reveal that sharks come in all shapes and sizes -- and probably should be more afraid of humans than we are of them. Back matter includes an index and a note about sharks.
