Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "ldquo;Baby Shark" aside, most kids relish reading about man-eating, menacing sharks. This newest offering from the Newbery Medal--winning duo of Steve Jenkins and Robin Page considers over 30 types of sharks that are extinct, endangered, or thriving, looking at their life cycles, habitats, diets, sizes, shapes, unique features, and threats to humans (as well as conservation statuses and threats from humans). As in previous offerings, glorious torn-paper collages spill across pages, complementing the fact-filled commentary that seems to reflect exactly the kinds of information kids want (in addition to fish, turtles, dolphins, and seals, tiger sharks have been known to eat bottles, shoes, toys, and license plates). Many illustrations include human silhouettes to help contextualize the different species, which range from huge whale sharks, the world's largest fish, to tiny, rare pocket sharks, small enough to fit into human hands (only two have ever been found). Double-page spreads concentrate on one aspect (adaptability, ancient relatives, record holders, etc.), a bibliography offers further reading selections, and a concluding chart offers quick comparisons of the 31 featured species. This is a handsome offering about a perennially popular subject."
