From the tiny cookiecutter to the great white, more than 400 kinds of sharks live in the oceans. There's the giant whale shark — longer than two school buses but gentle enough for humans to swim with. And the swell shark, which can wedge itself into a hideout and then swell so that it cannot be pulled out. Join acclaimed author Laurence Pringle as he discovers the wide variety of fish classified as sharks. Meryl Henderson's striking and realistic illustrations enhance the simple but informative text and allow young readers a glimpse of the amazing world under the sea. Readers will discover there is a lot more to sharks than what's portrayed in the movies.
