Series: Nature Storybooks
18 Aug. 2021
The great white shark swims on.
Her tail sways side-to-side;
her fins keep her balanced.
She travels the fast lane
where she can, cruising
In Great White Shark we follow a female shark on her way to warmer waters to give her pups the best chance of survival. Set in a stunning underwater world, Claire Saxby's signature poetic prose and Cindy Lane's sublime illustrations showcase the grace, majesty and power of one of the ocean’s top predators.

This excellent addition to the Nature Storybooks series uses a familiar format: a narrative story juxtaposed with factual information, supported by stunning illustrations.
Great White Shark follows a Great White as she hunts for food and migrates northward to give birth. Readers learn all kinds of facts about Great Whites—they have two types of muscles (for short bursts of speed and slow swimming), can turn their stomachs almost inside-out to expel bone and shell fragments, and have a sixth sense called “electroreception” which they use to hunt and navigate. The end matter contains extra information about Great Whites and an index readers can use to navigate to a particular topic.
Beautiful watercolour illustrations bring the cool-toned, watery world of the Great White to life.
Bright pops of colour in coral reefs contrast the shadowy depths of the ocean. The story and information provided are clear and accessible, making this a great resource for readers interested in sharks and sea life.
