A digital copy was given to me, free, in exchange for my honest opinion.
This was a very creative and fun way to present shark facts to kids. It asks funny questions, and the pictures allowed for children to picture what some of the answers would look like. This is something that also held my son's attention and made him laugh.

Good non-fiction picture book to introduce young readers to sharks. The author takes sharks out of the ocean and put them into everyday activities that the reader can relate to. Gives the reader just enough information to answer the question without being overwhelming.

I loved the way they compare shark size to the size of things that kids can understand. Wonderful! A good, nonfiction read aloud.
