Gliding through the water at breakneck speeds--a fin, just skimming the surface of the water. The biggest jaws you've ever seen. These are the iconic images that flash through all our minds when we think of sharks, but there's so much more to know about these majestic predators of the sea.

If you're already a fan of the Discovery's phenomenon Shark Week, then you will love this book! From the unique look of the prehistoric Whorl shark, to the hunting techniques of the Great White, all the thrills and chills of Shark Week are now here for year-round reading. Filled with photos, first-hand accounts of shark attacks, and unbelievable facts (Did you know that there are sharks that live in volcanoes?), this book is for every shark fanatic who wants to get even more up close and personal.

Now you really can live every week like it's shark week.

About the Author:

Martha Brockenbrough is the author of Finding Bigfoot. She wrote an educational humor column for Encarta, and game questions for Cranium and Trivial Pursuit. She also writes fiction, and her novel The Game of Love and Death was a finalist for the Kirkus Prize, and a winner of the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Award. She lives in Seattle with her family, which includes humans, dogs, and several fish, but no sharks.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4–6—Promoting the conservation of these feared—and often misunderstood—sea creatures, this work emphasizes the awesomeness of sharks. It covers dozens of shark species, from the smallest (the pale catshark at eight inches long) to the most elusive (the pocket shark, with only two recorded sightings). Shark anatomy, how scientists study fossilized remains, and common shark myths are discussed. Reproduction is covered in detail. A "Who Would Win?" section that pits sharks against other fearsome animals is high in kid appeal. The winner is calculated based on physical features and attack modes. Stories about shark attacks bring this thick read to a close. A useful index helps pinpoint areas of interest. Readers will appreciate the high-quality photos throughout. The advanced vocabulary, in combination with minimal pronunciation guides for scientific terms, makes this title suited for upper elementary and middle school readers. VERDICT This volume will swim off the shelves. Catch it to beef up shark collections.—Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX
