Surprising Sharks

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

An engaging introduction to the world of sharks, which seeks to dispel the myths about them, while adding fascinating detail that makes them even more interesting than the killers we like to think they are.

Davies includes sharks of all shapes and sizes and describes the sophisticated design which adapts them to their environment, as well as showing diagrams of the inside and outside of a shark.

Readers learn that sharks have been around for 300 million years, they live in every ocean and sea, and that every year they only kill six people worldwide but we kill 100 million of them. Big, bright, bold pictures and text show the reader what sharks are really like.
