I’ve mentioned previously my childhood geeky obsession with factual books so when glorious new ones arrive in packages I’m always thrilled. This is the first of a few over which I shall rave.

It’s unfortunate that the image doesn’t reveal the wonderful tactile pleasure of the retro-style binding and pages but I shall try to do justice this slice of informational deliciousness.

I can’t say I’ve ever really wanted to know much about sharks, although Miss Small has considered them favourites of hers for a long time, but this beauty just begged for me to read and wonder over many quirky and interesting facts.

From the weird and wonderful to the feeding frenzy this is just a joy throughout.

Considering the high profile sharks have in this country – and for my two cents’ worth if you don’t want to face one then don’t go into their home! – I think many young readers will relish this.

Highly recommended for primary libraries and children with an interest in nature.
