Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
At maturity, the sea's prime predator can be from six inches and a few ounces to 60 feet and 20 tons big; white, black, brown, green, purple, blue or polka dotted; and second only, perhaps, to dinosaurs for "grabbing" kids-as you'll discover when you put within easy reach Sandra Markle's photo- and microphotograph-illustrated Outside and Inside Sharks up-close-and-personal views of the characteristics that make these fish unique. Magnifications of their tooth buds and electricity sensors are among the fascinating images in this illuminating work.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-Unlike the many books on the topic that concentrate on the physical details and appearances of sharks, this one focuses on the whys and hows of their bodily functions. Included are clear discussions of breathing processes, skeletons, and teeth, along with some engrossing descriptions of how these animals move, see, and breed. The full-color photographs are striking, giving readers close-up looks at different species and body parts. Children fascinated by these creatures should be thrilled with Markle's offering.Melissa Hudak, North Suburban District Library, Roscoe, IL
