Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2008 September #1
    This abundantly illustrated, attractively designed collection of bite-size information about sharks and shark-related trivia will entertain and inform young readers. The topics covered include shark anatomy and physiology, behavioral habits, dietary preferences, and prehistoric relatives. Profiles of better-known species include plenty of information about their unique traits. Also covered are portrayals of sharks in mythology, popular culture, and literature, including some brief excerpts of Moby-Dick and The Old Man and the Sea. Double-page spreads that feature issues of The Chondrichthyes Chronicles, a faux newspaper that reports shark-related discoveries and scientific research, appear throughout the book. Hokey attempts to maintain a light tone with jokey asides and headings that may elicit more groans than grins, and it's unfortunate that there are no suggestions for further reading. Still, shark fans and browsers will enjoy the book's facts, packed layouts, and eye-catching visuals. Copyright 2008 Booklist Reviews.
