Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-- A sensationalist survey of the species, Shark concentrates on the unusual, the strange, the odd, and the frightening with minimal text and clear, bright illustrations. Although MacQuity places the risk of shark attack in its proper perspective (people are more likely to die in car accidents), the photographs and sections of such protective measures as mesh nets, repellents, electric - current barriers, etc., continue to promote the image of sharks as wanton killers. Every page is littered with full-color illustrations, all sizes of photographs, cut-outs from larger photographs, reproductions, drawings, cartoons, maps, and more. The text is scattered all over the page to accompany the illustrations, but not necessarily to explain them. A small classification chart shows tiny drawings of all the sharks, and the common characteristic that links them is mentioned in a sentence but not explained . The drawings of the internal organs are good, but the labels merely name, not define a scroll valve in an intestine, the stomach's ascending limb, and the intestines' spiral and/or ring valves. The quality and diversity of the photographs is undeniable (there's even a photograph of a pair of mating sharks), but even with an index, this is clearly a book for dipping in and out of, and not for solid information. --Frances E. Millhouser, Reston Regional Library, VA

    I purchased this book for my grandson, age 9. He LOVES learning

    I purchased this book for my grandson, age 9. He LOVES learning about sharks. The DK Eyewitness Series is always top notch reading material, with lots of colorful pictures, interesting facts, even about little known sharks, and included a CD and a colorful poster. The gift was a hit! My only disappointment is that I ordered the book (17 Dec) in what I thought was adequate time for a Christmas delivery. I wasn't aware that the book was being shipped from Great Britain, and was therefore delivery was delayed until mid-January. Not happy about that! But the book was worth the wait. Also I would note that the book is not just for children, so I enjoyed reading it, too.
