Booklist Review

Ages 6-9. Using concise language and simple syntax that's well matched to the target audience, this book in the Underwater World of Sharks series takes a fresh, concise look at one of the strangest-looking members of the shark family. In 10 three-page chapters, Burnham explores everything from the hammerhead's appearance and feeding habits to its brain size and relationship to humans. Exciting full-color photographs enhance the facts, and a listing of useful Web sites will lead young shark buffs on to more information. A glossary is appended. --Kelly Milner Halls
