School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-A wildlife biography in picture-book format. White Shark is just two days old when the book opens, and already she is pursuing injured, defenseless, or slow fish and other marine animals as she grows from a 4-foot newborn to a 20-foot adult. She is wounded by a swordfish and threatened by larger sharks but she survives. When her hunting skills improve, pilot fish become her companions. As an adult, she is unchallenged, becoming the ``Ruler of the Sea.'' Petruccio's naturalistic watercolors depict the grays and blues of her underwater world. Because little is known about much of these sharks' lives, the story is limited to hunting, eating, and survival techniques. Those insatiably curious shark enthusiasts will keep this title in constant circulation.-Louise L. Sherman, Anna C. Scott School, Leonia, NJ
