Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2004 Spring)
Jack and Annie of the Magic Tree House stories introduce this overview. The kid-friendly text describes various types of dolphins and sharks; explains how they swim, feed, breathe, and communicate; and dispels myths about shark attacks. Illustrated with capable drawings and rather murky black-and-white photos, the book includes tips for doing research at museums, on the Internet, etc. Reading list. Ind.
