If you believe the movies andbooks about shark attacks, you probably think that sharks are the biggest, scariest animals on the planet. But are all sharks the giant man hunters they are so often made out to be? What do they eat, where do they swim, and what do they do on weekends? Now the acclaimed science writer Seymour Simon and the Smithsonian Institution team up to bring you a new edition of his classic text on sharks, updated with recent scientific research on one of the world''s most mysterious creatures.
A graduate of the Bronx High School of Science and City College of New York City, Seymour Simon is known for his clear and informative books on science for children.

Gordon Award for his body of work by the American Nature Society as well as the New York State Knickerbocker Award for Juvenile Literature.
