Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2–Rockwell invites her readers to follow a newborn shark pup as it grows, explores its ocean home on its own, and develops at last into an adult blue shark. Strung throughout the narrative, like bubbles on a net, are interesting facts about shark physiology, behaviors, and deep-sea dangers. An author's note with extra information on blue sharks is appended. The whole is decorated with soft watercolor-and-pencil collage illustrations that are both attractive and, in the case of shark anatomy, informative. Less specifically detailed than Gail Gibbons's Sharks (Holiday House, 1992), and lessdiverse than Ray Troll's dramatic Sharkabet (Graphic Arts Center, 2002), this gentle introduction will please prereaders and emerging readers alike.–Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY

From the Inside Flap

Little Shark is born one day in the dark deepness of the sea. Soon his mother and forty-nine brothers and sisters swim away, and he is all alone.

The sea is a dangerous place. There are bigger sharks that can eat him and fishermen's nets than can trap him. Little Shark must find food and stay safe so that he can grow into a big shark. Will he make it? And what kind of shark is he?

Swim through the seas with Little Shark. Through his story you'll discover all kinds of fascinating shark facts-- how they eat, how they swim, even what their skeletons feel like!

When he was little, Anne Rockwell's son wanted to read every book about sharks he could find, so Anne was happy to write Little Shark's story for young readers.

Anne is a well-respected creator of innumerable children's books, and this is her seventh collaboration with Megan Halsey. Anne lives in Greenwich, Connecticut.

Megan Halsey painted sharks for this book while it was snowing outside her studio window. Her charming illustrations can also be found in Four Seasons Make a Year; Two Blue Jays; Becoming Butterflies; Pumpkin Day, Pumpkin Night; and One Bean. She lives in Lansdowne, Pennsylvania.
