Brightly illustrated with full-color drawings on almost every page , this overview provides enough specific details on sharks to be a useful addition to any collection. Several interesting tidbits highlight some of the unique characteristics of sharks. Maestro also provides a brief but effective description of the range and power of the sharks' senses. In addition to drawings of over 20 kinds of sharks, Guilio Maestro has included an excellent double-page map of the world showing broad differences in water temperatures and the types of sharks that inhabit those specific areas. Drawings of sharks' teeth are done life size, including a fossilized shark tooth. Even without chapters, index, or glossary, this is a good browsing book that updates and expands such favorites as Carol Carrick's Sand Tiger Shark (Clarion, 1979) and John F. Waters' Hungry Sharks (Crowell, 1974). --Frances E. Millhouser, Reston Regional Library, VA
