Discover the amazing survival skills of the sea's most fearsome predators. Here are thirteen of the world's most amazing meat eaters of the sea —from the all-time favorite, the great white, to the chilling little cookie-cutter shark. One is huge. Another is small. One has a giant snout or tail or head. Another has tiny horns or little skin flaps. Readers will learn how each of these traits—big or little—helps a particular type of shark survive in the fish-eat-fish world of the sea. Sandra Markle teams up with world-renowned marine-life photographer Doug Perrine to give young readers an entertaining, exciting introduction to sharks.
