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.Believe it or not, oftentimes sharks need to hide, and it's not just to pounce on some unsuspecting prey. They also need to hide from other predators to avoid being eaten, or perhaps from being the next catch by a fishing boat. Whether using camouflage, sucking up water to swell to a larger size to fool other fish, or using larger-than-normal eyes to trick predators into thinking they're too large to eat, sharks have adapted in many ways to ensure that they survive.
