Synopsis: Up close with the ocean's most fearsome and famous predator and the scientists who study them--just thirty miles from the Golden Gate Bridge!

A few miles from San Francisco lives a population of the ocean's largest and most famous predators. Each fall, while the city's inhabitants dine on steaks, salads, and sandwiches, the great white sharks return to California's Farallon Islands to dine on their favorite meal: the seals that live on the island's rocky coasts. Massive, fast, and perfectly adapted to hunting after 11 million years of evolution, the great whites are among the planet's most fearsome, fascinating, and least understood animals. In the fall of 2012, Katherine Roy visited the Farallons with the scientists who study the islands' shark population. She witnessed seal attacks, observed sharks being tagged in the wild, and got an up close look at the dramatic Farallons--a wildlife refuge that is strictly off-limits to all but the scientists who work there. Neighborhood Sharks is an intimate portrait of the life cycle, biology, and habitat of the great white shark, based on the latest research and an up-close visit with these amazing animals.

From the Inside Flap: Every September the great white sharks return to San Francisco. While their 800,000 human neighbors dine on steak, salad, and sandwiches, the white sharks hunt for their favorite meal...
We both fear and admire great white sharks' fierce hunting skills. But how exactly do they track down their prey? Author-illustrator Katherine Roy's Neighborhood Sharks dives into their hunting grounds in the Farallon Islands, just 30 miles from the Golden Gate Bridge. Roy's gorgeous, lush paintings and detailed diagrams enable curious readers to learn exactly how the Pacific's most feared predators maintain their place at the top of the ocean's food chain. Moving beyond the often-told tale of predator versus prey, she vividly recreates a day in the life of a shark and reveals why sharks are essential to our ecosystem and deserve our protection.
Katherine Roy researched Neighborhood Sharks on location at the Farallon Islands with the scientists who study this unique and misunderstood animal. Based on the latest information and abounding with fascinating glimpses into a great white's life and habits, Neighborhood Sharks will astound young shark fans and their parents alike.
