Surprising Sharks

CRITICS HAVE SAID

  • This playful text, complemented nicely by James Croft’s bright illustrations, shows how sharks breathe, hunt and have babies.
    –Childrens Literature
  • She crafts a true storyline-what makes sharks sharks?-and carries it through to the end. Croft’s lavish acrylics add vibrant color, personable fish, and anatomic detail. Layout and type design enhance the illustrations; the package can’t be beat. Surprising, indeed.
    –Kirkus
