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 *

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

Liz Evans

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
