Kids who love the deep will get a thrill from this close-encounter book of some of the world’s deadliest fish.  Each page highlights a different shark with close-up, giant photographs, lots of captions and a short blurb talking about the animal. 

A particular feature I liked most was the danger rating scale that suggested how likely the species was to pose a threat to humans.  This book is also unique in that it features several lesser known breeds of shark.
