Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This colorful picture-book biography introduces marine biologist Eugenie Clark, first as a child watching sharks swim at a large aquarium and pretending to be one. On a visit to the seashore, she swims underwater, looking for her favorite fish. As she grows up, she reads books about sharks, takes challenging science courses, and eventually earns a doctorate in zoology. Clark joins research missions in the field, carries out experiments, and writes books to clarify misconceptions about sharks. Keating points out obstacles Clark faced as a woman determined to become a scientist, but only in the appended back matter does the time frame of her life become clear. The writing flows well, keeping a clear focus on Clark and her dream, while including pertinent details from the career of the Shark Lady, known for her groundbreaking research and her work to change people's perceptions of sharks. The stylized digital illustrations are richly colored and appealing, though occasionally they seem more fanciful than realistic. A lively introduction to an American scientist.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Keating (Pink Is for Blobfish) offers a lively portrait of scientist Eugenie Clark, who pursued a passion for sharks. Playfully mixing the aquatic and terrestrial, Miguens (One Small Donkey) shows sharks circling the stacks of the library where a young Clark reads: "Whale sharks. Nurse sharks. Tiger sharks. Lemon sharks. Eugenie wanted to know about them all." Despite facing discrimination as a woman, Clark earned a zoology degree then literally dove into field research, changing the way sharks were perceived. Through Clark's story, Keating suggests that, with perseverance, a childhood fascination can evolve into a life's work. Ages 4-8. Author's agent: Kathleen Rushall, Andrea Brown Literary.
