About the Author

Nicola Davies, a zoologist and author of such books as WILD ABOUT DOLPHINS, ONE TINY TURTLE, and BAT LOVES THE NIGHT, has a special love of the sea. She has seen basking sharks off the coast of England and once came face to face with a shark while she was snorkeling - a baby spotted dogfish about the size of a sardine. Since sharks have been on Earth a lot longer than humans, she feels they deserve our respect and protection. She lives in Somerset, England.

James Croft has always enjoyed drawing sharks and finds that their teeth, speed, and the sense of danger they evoke fuel his imagination like no other creature. The illustrator of numerous books for children, including the Brand New Readers MOUSE HAS FUN and MOUSE GOES OUT by Phyllis Root, James Croft lives and works in London.

Since our first reading, my four year old daughter loves this book. She giggles at the humor and Nicola Davies wonderful use of her craft. A wonderful literary non-fiction choice.

We teach shark week at our preschool center... I just reordered this book because our original copy fell apart from years of overuse... it teaches the children about sharks without the terrifying pictures you see I most of the other child oriented books... For years the children in my care have remembered more about the different types of sharks, their varying diets, shark anatomy, and human impact on them after reading this particular book... The illustrations are well done... My loves this book so much, he drew his own version and stapled the pages together! The book also uses humor which helps to maintain their attention...

The illustrations are fun and beautiful. It doesn't focus on sharks being scary like so many other shark books and it's got great shark facts for my shark obsessed 5 year old!
