Sharks : A Mighty Bite-y History


Author: Miriam Forster


Illustrator: Gordy Wright


An epic, oversized nonfiction picture book—all about sharks and their prehistoric predecessors

Sharks are some of the oldest creatures on the earth (or, rather, in its waters). This wonderful survey follows sharks from their earliest appearance in the Paleozoic era up through the challenges they face today.

Along the way, readers will meet many different sharks from different points in history. They will get an up-close evolutionary look at what makes a shark a shark—like their skin, their teeth, their fins, and more. They will also get a crash course in archeological time, as sharks have been around much longer than humans. (Our friend the hammerhead has been patrolling tropical coastlines for more than 20 million years!)

With lush illustrations from Gordy Wright and meticulous research from author Miriam Forster, Sharks: A Mighty, Bite-y History is sure to delight shark lovers, science fans, and any reader who loves to discover new wonders about the world around them.
