Booklist Review

More like compact encyclopedias than anything one might read straight through, the books in the Pocket Genius series cover their subjects efficiently and with plenty of eye-catching visuals. After covering reproduction, migration maps, environmental threats, and gnashing, shredding, awesome teeth, Sharks presents a similar scheme but instead considers size, habitat, and distribution of more than 150 different sharks and rays. The crisp photos in Sharks are well produced and snazzily laid out. Each book closes with relevant fact lists and a helpful glossary. You won't replace your existing collections with these books, but they make for handy, one-stop reference sources for student researchers and amateur fact hounds.--Chipman, Ian Copyright 2010 Booklist
