About this title

Synopsis:

Entertaining and informative, this intriguin g new series is packed with facts on favourite topics. Tiger Sharks gets its teeth into all the killers of the animal ki ngdom including poisonous animals, man-eaters and the diseas e carriers. '

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5--These attractively formatted surveys give brief descriptions of major physical or behaviorial characteristics of dozens of species. Short paragraphs of text wrap around vivid drawings of the animals discussed. Boxed inserts offer additional tidbits of information on assorted creatures, as well as historical anecdotes, folklore, and legends. A ``Young Observers Quiz,'' consisting of eight multiple-choice questions, follows each chapter, with answers at the end of the books. In addition to the realistic illustrations, there are a number of cartoons, mostly in the quiz sections. A few are unnecessarily grotesque. Also, the text of Tiger Sharks is flawed by occasional oversimplification. For instance, the text refers to spiders as ``meat-eaters,'' a misleading statement as they must liquefy prey before they can feed. Another passage asserts that black widow spiders ``...like to spin webs across toilet seats. Ouch!''--this information is both sensationalized and incomplete. Vampire Bats succinctly outlines the major reasons why various animals are nocturnal and is by far the superior title. Susanne Whayne's Night Creatures (S.&S., 1993) provides more detailed information on many, but not all, of the same species. Stick with the Steele.
