Editorial Reviews

Review

“Covering a period of 450 million years, the reign of sharks has been three times longer than that of the dinosaurs — and 100 times longer than our own! There were sharks in our oceans long before the first creatures crawled onto land, and even before the earliest insects took to the sky.” — from the book

About the Author

Author David George Gordon is the award-winning author of 14 books on wildlife and wild places. He is a regular contributor to National Geographic Kids magazine and serves as the science writer for Washington Sea Grant Program, a branch of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, headquartered in the University of Washington in Seattle.

More About the Author

David George Gordon is the award-wining author of 19 books on topics that range from watching gray whales and bald eagles to appreciating cockroaches, coral reef fishes and geoduck clams. The New York Times called his Field Guide to the Slug "gripping," citing its "almost breathtaking" account" of snail sex.

"David George Gordon, a naturalist and author of 19 books, including the best-selling "Eat-a-Bug Cookbook," knows how to spin a yarn," said the Chicago Tribune.

"Combining clever wit with solid science, David George Gordon has produced a most engaging, enlightening, and entertaining treatise on the evolution, anatomy and physiology, and ecological place of snails and slugs," added the editor of Pacific Horticulture magazine.

The Eat-a-Bug Cookbook Revised has been getting accolades from a number of sources. "Oh, Jiminy Cricket, you've never looked more scrumptious," proclaimed NPR's The Salt food blog.

The freewheeling naturalist has been featured in Ripley's Believe It or Not, National Geographic Kids, The Wall Street Journal and Time magazine. He's been a guest on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, ABC's Nightline and The View. As a bug chef, he has performed at the Smithsonian Institution, Yale University and Singapore's Food Fest.

Gordon lives in Seattle with his wife (and illustrator) Karen Luke Fildes and their pet tarantula Wes.

My son received this book as a gift and it has provided many hours of study and fascination with sharks. He took it to share one day in his kindergarten class and it was a hit!! All the parents wanted to know where I got it so they could buy similar items for their kids. I refered them to amazon or ebay. The body pieces are fragile though. We've lost the muscles and his skeleton is loose, but it's only because it's been used to death. We can still read about the sharks. You could glue the pieces back in. Either way, it's a great book!!

Although it says that this book is appropriate for kids aged 9-12, our five year old loves it! Each page shows a layer of the sharks body and explains how it works. There is also information about other sharks in general. The 3-D model captures our son's imagination. He particularly thinks it's funny that the shark has tires in its tummy. We highly recommend any of the books in this series.

Format: Hardcover
This book has a three-dimensional model of a shark and lots of colorful pictures. It teaches you all about the Great White Shark.The most interesting part of the book is about the muscular system of the Great White Shark.

It is a really cool book!

My kids, even my young one at 4, like to read this book, we have several of them. The 3 dimension aspect really allows you to observe and gain a better understanding of a shark and what its different layers do and how they fit together. I think its helped my kids gain a better appreciation for them. It is kind of fragile since the model part of it made out of clear plastic, so you have to be careful not to abuse it.

Very cool way of learning.
The book presents a layer-by-layer look into the shark's body.

The content and difficulty of the book appears to be for Grade 3 to 6. That's beyond my 6 year old kid. But nonetheless, he enjoyed the look and feel of the book. I will be getting the other books in the series.

These books are great for my 10 year old son. They provide a hands on approach and visual to a cool story. I also purchased two other books from this series, T-rex and humans.
