" Let my 13 yo son and a few of my nephews read this and they absolutely loved it. They said it was fun and bright and they learned all about sharks! Received a free earc for an honest review from Net galley " said.

"First Second Publishing's tagline is Great Graphic Novels for Every Reader, and their science series lives up to hype. Sharks: Nature's Perfect Hunter, set to be published April 2018, is worth the pre-order. The target audience is grades 4-8, but adults will learn something new about shark evolution and classification. Chalked full of scientific terms, the gorgeous illustrations will have every student turning the pages. Pair this with I Survived the Shark Attacks of 1916 by Lauren Tarshis. (NetGalley provided the e-ARC in exchange for an honest review.)" said.

"This graphic novel goes into different types or sharks and their enviornments. It was facinating and the illistrations really help. This is a fantastic book for middle or high schoolers. It uses a lot of the academic language and has great information in it. This would be a great text to have in a science or language arts classroom. I received a copy of this from Net Galley in exchange for a review. But when this book is released I will be buying a couple for my classroom library. This title is scheduled to be published April 17, 2018. " said.

"Science Comic: Sharks is a wonderfully entertaining and educational graphic novel style book depicting the ins, outs, hows, and whys of sharks of all kinds. The comic book format delivers a science lesson that easily engages the most reluctant reader, especially those who love ocean-life and sharks. It explores food, cells, senses, abilities, and teeth, and whole lot more. Don't forget all those teeth! One icky fact is that sharks can turn their stomach inside out! How's that for cool/gross? Sure to be a hit with the boys.. There is plenty of science, colorful illustrations, informative facts, trivia and legend, all delivered in color, and humor at times.
In exchange for my honest review, NetGalley gave me the privilege of reading this book.

"I’m a huge fan of the Science Comics series, they are fun and packed with information. I always learn something new from these books even though they are meant for kids! The subtle humor and easy to read format make these books great for reluctant readers and perfect for classrooms.

Sharks is full of fascinating information, it helps to dispell the idea that sharks are terrifying man-eating monsters (although the text still occasionally refers to them as monsters), but instead represents them as fascinating, highly-developed hunting machines. The book focuses on shark abilities and anatomy, their huge variations, and human impact on their world and survival, but I’m surprised that the book doesn’t mention shark researchers (we are totally obsessed with Eugenie Clark at our house!).

I received a digital ARC from the publisher via NetGalley.

"As someone who has an irrational fear of sharks, this book was both illuminating and challenging. I learned so much more about sharks than I could have imagined, and found myself challenged to think about sharks with perhaps more information and less fear. The graphic/comic layout was appealing and skillfully done so that information was both pictorially and textually available. I can imagine using this resource with reluctant readers as the pictures would draw one in with their dramatic presentation and encourage the reader to find out more. As the parent of a "squeamish" child, the drawings are technically accurate and engaging while remaining comfortable for the reader with less graphic sensibilities. This book will be a great addition to a classroom science unit or for the budding scientist in any household.

Thanks to NetGalley for the opportunity to read this digital ARC in return for a fair and honest review.

"Science Comics has a one-two punch in March and April, first with Robots & Drones, next with Sharks. Kids LOVE sharks. The introduction nails it with its opening line: "Lots of kids, including many of you who are reading this book, go through an 'I love sharks' phase." Shark books move off my shelves faster than just about any animal, tied only by dinosaurs (and we've already got a Science Comic on them), so this book should be going in your cart, sight unseen. But since that's not what I do - and because I still do love sharks - here's a bit more to whet your shark appetites.

The nonfiction narrative is tied together with a story about a fictional group of shark seekers, which leads into a discussion about the bad rap sharks have gotten over the years. The classic movie Jaws kicked off shark paranoia back in the mid-1970s, and that's explored here, as is the fact that Jaws author Peter Benchley became a passionate shark conservationist in the aftermath of his book and subsequent movie.

Readers get a history of sharks from the prehistoric era until the present, with a look at shark physiology. migration patterns, variety, and eating habits. Spoiler alert: we don't taste very good to them, and any biting is purely accidental. We also get a peek at the one sea animal that can take down even a great white... and it ain't man. A shark family tree, glossary of terms, and a more accurate clarification of how to phrase shark incidents (the section's called "Don't Say 'Shark Attack'").

As I was writing this review up, one of my library kids peeked over my shoulder and saw the page scans. When I told him Sharks was coming out in April, he yelped, "Are you kidding me?!" which just goes to show you, Science Comics: Sharks is going to be a hit. I may have to order two copies.
