Gr. 3-7. Mallory, editor and chief of publishing programmes at the New England Aquarium, offers an engrossing, visually captivating entry in the Scientists in the Field series. He recalls his experiences with scientist Pete Klimley, whose research on sharks has taught the world much, as they worked in the waters off Costa Rica helping film the IMAX feature Island of the Sharks. Mallory's firsthand experience results in crystalline descriptions of both the emotional rush and the visual awe of swimming among sharks. Yet his personal accounts never interfere with his primary focus: to teach children about the often-misunderstood deep-sea creatures. Vivid photographs abound and include not only underwater shots of the sharks and divers but also shots of the terrain and wildlife of Cocos Island and the diving equipment that enabled the crew to get close to their subjects. The photos will keep readers turning pages; the text shares plenty that is worth knowing and remembering. Roger Leslie
