It's time to learn about the sea's most feared (and most misunderstood) residents: sharks!

Owen Davey returns to nonfiction to explain the mysteries of those denizens of the deep. Some deadly, some not-so-deadly, and almost all just generally misunderstood. Exciting and detailed illustrations fill the page and educate young readers about these thrilling residents of the sea! Delivering information with the same whimsical text and brash illustration that saw his previous book win the affection of the Wall Street Journal , Smart About Sharks is sure to have teeth!

Owen Davey is a freelance illustrator, living and working out of Leicester, United Kingdom. He graduated with a First Class BA in Illustration from Falmouth University. Davey's work has been published in every continent (except Antarctica), including picture books in the United Kingdom, America, Australia, Germany, France, Portugal, China, and Korea.

This book is so cool! The graphics are awesome, and information is presented in a way that makes me want to read every word, and then to go looking for more! All Flying Eye Books are worth a look, but this one especially because it is about sharks, some of the coolest animals in the world.

This book has awesome illustrations- reminiscent of Charley Harper's work. It has good, easy to understand facts and would be a great resource for kids.
