Description

The sea is a dangerous place. There are sharks of course, but the real dangers are much smaller. Like a killer octopus the size of a golf ball. And it's not just animals: there are pirates, and giant waves that can break boats in two. Get the facts. Then read 'Shark Attack!' - a great diving story about what to do when a shark is after you and it can really smell your blood.

This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged.
