Chomp! The Truth About Sharks

I'm thrilled to tell you that Chomp! The Truth About Sharks will be in readers' hands on October 15, 2024. Some librarians have already shared their students' excitement! 

Did you see the sneak-peek on social media? Are you ready for the full cover?  
I'd love to hear what you think of the cover! I really appreciate that you can see the rows of the shark's teeth as well as what look like freckles. 

But sharks don't have freckles. What are they?

They're actually jelly-filled pores called Ampullae of Lorenzini. These super sensors detect electricity in other living creatures and help sharks to be super-successful predators.

A Question-and-Answer Format

Like all the books in The Truth About animal series, Chomp! The Truth About Sharks uses a question-and-answer book structure. Kids' popular questions get answered!
   Are sharks fish?
   Why do sharks lose so many teeth?
   Can sharks smell blood?
   Will a shark bite me?
   and more!

At the end of the main text, readers learn even more! 
   Sensational Sharks highlights 13 unique sharks.
   Shark Fact or Fiction clarifies or confirms rumors about sharks. 
   Try This: Sink or Float? science experiment helps readers understand shark anatomy.
   Glossary and Helpful Websites provide more information for readers.

Hardcover and Paperback

Like all of The Truth About animal books, Chomp! The Truth About Sharks is available in an affordable paperback or hardcover edition. AND like the rest of the series, the hardcover includes a full-size poster! 

What do I mean by a full-size poster? Take a look at this brief unboxing video of my book Ribbit! The Truth About Frogs. I show off the frog poster in it! Watch it here.
