Synopsis

Surprising Sharks by Nicola Davies

Find out what sharks are really like in this fun, informative picture book, part of the Nature Storybooks series. The last word you want to hear when you're swimming in the warm blue sea is Shark! But most real sharks are not what you might expect. Some are no bigger than a chocolate bar, some have built-in fairy lights and most wouldn't go near a human, even if you were wearing a sign saying dinner ! So if you think all sharks are giant, man-eating killers, you're in for a big surprise.

Reviews

...highly readable, gently humorous re-issue. -- Jill Bennet Red Reading Hub This informative picture book by Nicola Davies gives you a glimpse into what sharks are really like [...] Think you know all about sharks? Think again. Smallish The presentation is outstanding - the superb artwork by James Croft shows us all about sharks and the world in which they live. The book makes excellent use of really good, well-labelled diagrams too. Every page is in full colour and the engrossing text weaves in and out of the pictures to give the reader a real insight into sharks in all their amazing variety. Parents in Touch
