There's no doubt about it, children are fascinated by sharks Whether it's their sleek bodies or the power they command in the ocean, sharks continue to be a favorite subject of children of all ages. In Sharks, young readers will delve into the fascinating world of sharks, learning how they hunt, why they are being threatened, and why they need camouflage. Each volume combines large, easy-to-read type and spectacular photographs of the curious varieties of sharks. This rare and thorough look into the world of sharks will compel and inform every reader.Sharks are more than the sleek, toothy type you've seen in the movies. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes that help them hunt, swim, or skim the bottom of the ocean for food. Maybe you've seen the cookie-cutter shark, or perhaps you've spotted a goblin shark and noticed it looks like a sewn-together Frankenshark. Whatever the case, sharks come in all kinds of packages, which adds to the wonderment and amazement of these magnificent creatures.
