about

A new generation of reference books for kids used to surfing and swiping.

Every kid likes being freaked out watching a great white shark attack, but this book exposes the reality: that sharks are incredible creatures and we are just beginning to understand their complex lives. Collection spreads featuring hundreds of sharks open chapters focussing on specific shark families. Thorough, up-to-date information is combined with cutting-edge facts about sharks' amazing memories, shark no-go zones, and cleaners and clingers-on: fish that travel with and attend sharks. The book encourages an active response: sharks are endangered and here's what you can do about it. Fantastic photos, structured layouts, and age-appropriate vocabulary entice newly confident readers into the world of information books. Data boxes, maps, and stats encourage related numeracy and science skills. Vetted by literacy experts.

Penny Arlon is an author who writes children's non-fiction, taking inspiration from her children. Her books range from pre-school to family reference, and include the Art Attack books, based on the award-winning CITV children's television programme, and all 14 titles in Dorling Kindersley's Eye Know series.
