This book made me feel an entire range of emotions and I couldn't put it down. With each story told I went into it with more and more interest. 'Jaws' scared me, but 'Shark Trouble' made me feel more at ease with the ocean and all of its amazing inhabitants.

EXTREMELY INTERESTING NON-FICTION! Benchley and his family are all certified divers. Not only does he give information about sharks, but also detailed descriptions of encounters with them while diving. He also describes encounters with a manta ray, orcas, great barracuda, etc. There is also information about how to survive ocean hazards such as riptides and undertows, and periodically little trivial physics facts are included. Did you know that if you bleed while down deep in the ocean, your blood appears black, that an animal may appear 30% larger underwater because the water can act as a lense, that some squid have claws in their suckers, that the dorsal fin of an orca may be 5 or 6' high, that great white pups are 4 or 5' long when born? I learned all this from PB's fascinating book. It is easy and light enough reading for a child but interesting for anyone. He has a humorous writing style.

Even if he made them up these stories are great! My husband, who loves the ocean, fishing, diving, read this book last year and recommends it to everyone.
