A stunning addition to the Nature Storybooks series, Great White Shark tells the real story about one of the planet's most fascinating and misunderstood creatures.

The great white shark swims on.
Her tail sways side-to-side;
her fins keep her balanced.
She travels the fast lane
where she can, cruising
invisible seaways


In Great White Shark we follow a female shark on her way to warmer waters to give her pups the best chance of survival. Set in a stunning underwater world, Claire Saxby's signature poetic prose and Cindy Lane's sublime illustrations showcase the grace, majesty and power of one of the ocean’s top predators.
