An exciting and engaging educational book for children. The author's art work and creative descriptions illustrate great white sharks in a digestible and interesting way for younger children. Not too science heavy, but gives children a unique look into one of the world's most fascinating predators. Kids definitely won't get bored with this read! Highly recommended.

This is an exciting nonfiction book with dramatic illustrations and just the right amount of text for middle grades. I am giving it as a gift to a fourth grader .
