Introduces sharks and why they sometimes attack humans, and tells of some real-life shark attacks. It is a beautiful summer day and even though it has gotten darker, you are not ready to leave the ocean. Suddenly, something brushes past your shoulder. You turn to see a dark shape circling back, heading straight for you. It is a shark! Could you be its next meal? Does this seem unlikely? It actually happened to eight-year-old Jessie Arbogast. And although it is extremely rare for a human to be attacked by a shark, it does occasionally happen. In Scary Sharks, author Elaine Landau uses dramatic examples to explain what it is like to be bitten by a shark. Scientific information about the anatomy, habitats, behavior, and diet of the shark, along with full-color photographs and a Fast Facts section, make this a must-read for anyone who is interested in sharks and shark attacks.

Was a fairly basic information book. I didn't really learn much except that some nuclear submarines have evidence of shark bites. I found that was the most interesting bit of information in the book. The rest was pretty much everything you learn from a shark documentary.
