About the Author:

Red Brick Learning is a Capstone Press author.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-Beginning with a brief litany of shark attacks, this slender book describes the shark's physiology, its carnivorous predilection, reasons behind attacks on humans, and the current stress on shark populations from overfishing and pollution. An "album" of data about four species (human attackers all) is included. The topic and the cover photo of a gaping great white are attention grabbing, and the simple text and plethora of small, color photos will be reassuring to reluctant readers. Similar titles include Betsy Maestro's simpler A Sea Full of Sharks (Scholastic, 1997), Claire Llewellyn's colorful Best Book of Sharks (Kingfisher, 1999), Laurence Pringle's excellent Sharks! Strange and Wonderful (Boyds Mills, 2001), and Sandra Markle's more detailed Outside and Inside Sharks (Atheneum, 1996).
