Join award-winning science writer Seymour Simon in this picture book introduction to sharks.

If you believe the movies and books about shark attacks, you probably think that sharks are the biggest, scariest animals on the planet. But are all sharks the giant man hunters they are so often made out to be? What do they eat, where do they swim, and what do they do on weekends? Dive in and explore one of the world's most mysterious creatures with acclaimed science writer Seymour Simon.

With clear, simple text and stunning full-color photographs, readers will learn all about sharks-their behavior and habitat-in this informative picture book.
