FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. If you believe the movies and books about shark attacks, you probably think that sharks are the biggest, scariest animals on the planet. But are all sharks the giant man hunters they are so often made out to be? What do they eat, where do they swim, and what do they do on weekends? Dive in and explore one of the world's most mysterious creatures with acclaimed science writer Seymour Simon as he clears up misconceptions about sharks by looking at various species and discussing their characteristics and behavior.

From the Back Cover:

Anyone who's ever been in the ocean has thought it: Are there sharks swimming here too? But people's fear far outweighs the danger. Acclaimed science writer Seymour Simon sets the record straight. Sharks are serious predators, but more people are killed in car accidents during a single holiday weekend than have been killed by sharks in the past hundred years.
