Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-5-- Although strictly speaking this is not a museum exhibit catalog, it does nevertheless focus on the "Sharks: Fact & Fantasy" exhibit that appeared at the National History Museum of Los Angeles County and other museums throughout the country. The text contains interesting facts about many species of sharks, but because it is organized around a specific exhibit rather than by subject matter, its appeal and usefulness are limited. The full-color photographs show what might be one family as they progress through the musuem, looking at the models in different poses. No pretense is made that the illustrations are supposed to be of real sharks, and one close-up photograph of a model mouth full of the never-ending rows of replacement teeth is indeed fearsome. Yet, fabricated models are not as effective as the real thing in illustrating an animal's appearance. There is also something artificial that pervades even the photographs of the people viewing these models. --Frances E. Millhouser, Reston Regional Library, VA

From Kirkus Reviews

For shark fanciers, a look at a Los Angeles Natural History Museum exhibit, Sharks: Fact and Fantasy. Now touring the country, it includes models of large and small sharks, many of them swimming in simulated undersea settings. The text follows a group of young museum-goers as they examine shark teeth, fossil sharks, sharks in art, and a living shark embryo; shark anatomy, special adaptations, types of sharks, and some shark facts are also included. Photos are clear, colorful and engaging. Not comprehensive, but an attractive added purchase. Pronunciation guide; additional reading; index. (Nonfiction. 8-10) -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
