Opening sentence
From above, her charcoal skin blends with the dark depths of the ocean.
This book reminded my very much of The Emperor's Egg by Martin Jenkins as it consists of both prose and information, written in different fonts.

The illustrations of the shark and the ocean are detailed and simply breathtaking. This book is very informative for those students interested in sharks, and the prose flows like water; with some beautiful vocabulary setting a slow and easy pace.

This would be a great book to read to students and then extend by discussing the facts on each page. There is certainly plenty of detail in the illustrations. I actually read it as two different books, first the prose and then the facts.

This is a beautiful book and we are so lucky to now have a copy in our library!
