Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-Eye-catching photographs and clear prose demystify these much-feared creatures. Sure bait to induce a greater respect for and understanding of these amazing fish. (Feb. 1993)
School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-- Dramatic, sometimes sensational photographs and a balanced, accessible text present both basic facts and tantalizing trivia about this animal that tops its foodchain. Physical characteristics, including differences between sharks and other fish, primitive origins, amazing senses, and predatory lifestyle lead the way to a discussion of the relationship between humans and sharks. Patterns of attacks along with traditional defenses against them from a variety of times and cultures shed light on both human and animal nature and add a touch of humor. A final chapter on ecological concerns includes potential benefits for people from research on sharks and a warning about the importance of every creature. The index is extensive, and the dynamic cover ensures that this book won't sit on the shelf. Hint: The ``Shark Quiz'' that opens it makes great booktalk material. --Susan Oliver, Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library System
Hazel Rochman
Do we need another book about sharks? Like snakes, sharks inspire fear, and that makes them endlessly fascinating. This is an attractively designed volume, with clear type, quality paper, and outstanding full-color photographs, including a view on the cover of an open mouth with lots of daggerlike teeth. The text is packed with information on sharks' physical characteristics, behavior, ecology, and survival. Cerullo's style is generally straightforward ("of the estimated 350 species, only about 5 to 10 percent are considered potential man-eaters"), though there are occasional arch exclamations ("Rubbing a shark the wrong way can definitely be a dangerous experience!"). She includes a brief bibliography and an entertaining quiz about popular misconceptions. The dramatic pictures compel attention--one rare photo shows a baby shark with its yolk sac still attached--and in a brief statement the underwater photographer describes his feelings about diving with sharks. The combination of excitement and straightforward fact is what makes this book compelling.
