The Synopsis
Explore the ocean's wonders through the eyes of a greatwhite as it treks from the Farallon Islands off the coast of California tothe warm waters of Hawaii some 2,300 miles away. Along its journey, the17-foot shark encounters natural prey and predators-from skittish sealsto brazen orcas-as well as man-made impediments that threaten notonly the giant fish, but the balance of ocean's ecology.
The Review
This book does not have an intense story line, but it touches so many important aspects like the damage that man does to the environment - mainly the oceans and animals. The graphics are AMAZING - my favourite is a full page of a shark catching a seal. This book will go over well with younger readers.
