Description

Which type of shark do you most not want to meet in the water? But if you are attacked - where's the best place to poke a shark? Great White Sharks, Bull Sharks, even Whales Sharks - it's all in here. Get the facts. Then read the adventure story 'Swimming with Sharks'. Learn the big lesson of the day: don't bleed when there are sharks around!

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.
