Grade 2-4-Jurassic Shark tells the story of a female Hybodus,a deadly prehistoric predator that lived in the oceans some 180 million years ago. She is described as swimming alone and attacking even larger and more aggressive prey. She is not always successful on her hunt for food and is careful when carrying her young and seeking a safe place for birthing. This book is written for young readers just beginning to explore serious information about dinosaurs and plesiosaurs. Carr's vivid digital paintings are astonishingly lifelike and will hold great appeal for this audience.-Donna Marie Wagner, Exeter Community Library, Reading, PA

Gr. 1-3. Diffily personalizes the life of a shark, a Hybodus, who lived 180 million years ago, the fearless ancestor of today's white sharks. Here, she's a predator and pregnant, and the brief text covers her search for safety and food. There's an attack on a larger creature, a Liopleurodon, in order to make a safe space for her to give birth. Her baby shark is born alive, and hungry. Although there's much attacking and rending of flesh, there isn't a whole lot of blood in the water, and the birth of the baby is pretty bloodless, too. The images are dramatic, but they have the smooth, slippery feel that comes with computer-generated art. Young readers who can't get enough of dinosauria will enjoy this one. GraceAnne DeCandido
