Sarah L. Thomson is the author of three previous novels for young readers. Her most recent book is The Secret of the Rose, a thrilling historical mystery that the Maine Sunday Telegram called "a tour de force of 16th century London life." The Dragon's Son, a retelling of the King Arthur story, was a Junior Library Guild selection and a Bank Street College of Education Best Book of the Year. The Washington Post described The Manny, a comedy about a boy nanny, as having "a plot worthy of Jane Austen." A former editor with a major children's book publisher, she lives in Portland, Maine.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2–Illustrated with full-page, full-color photographs, this highly readable title explains basic facts of shark life and elaborates on the diversity of different species. Clear comparisons are made with real-life objects; readers learn that some sharks are so small that they can be held in the palm of the hand while others are longer than a pickup truck. Concepts and new vocabulary are explained in context with a pronunciation guide for harder words in parentheses. Common misconceptions are also considered: humans are more likely to be hit by lightning than killed by a shark. A discussion of the need to protect the animals' habitat includes the fact that people have killed more than half of all the sharks in the world.–Kathleen Meulen, Blakely Elementary School, Bainbridge Island, WA
