Neighborhood Sharks by Katherine Roy - - ADVISABLE

Roy, Katherine Neighborhood Sharks: Hunting with the Great Whites of California's Farallon Islands, 48 pgs. Roaring Brook Press, 2014. $17.99. NON FICTION PICTURE BOOK. Language: G; Violence: PG (Shark attack of seal, blood); Mature Content: G. 

The Farallones Islands are about 30 miles off the coast of San Francisco.  Every fall, sharks migrate here for the rich hunting opportunities of young elephant seals.  

This detailed illustrated description of the sharks and their hunting and eating behavior is a fascinating read.  A little bit of blood and gore, this book is full of pictures that will grab the reader, the text is engaging and the topic is sure fire. Upper elementary through middle school because of the, well, sharks!
