“After a brief introduction to the smallest and largest shark species, Do You Really Want to Meet a Shark? follows an inquisitive girl on a cage-diving expedition to meet a great white. Author Cari Meister’s second-person text and Daniele Fabbri’s bold cartoon illustrations add immediacy to the experience. Peppered with facts, warnings, and questions, the text focuses mainly on the dangers of interacting with sharks rather than their habitat, diet, and behaviors.”—Out of the Box

School Library Journal,
November 2016

“One of the few informational series to incorporate the use of illustrations instead of photographs into the narrative, the style of which matches the text well. The titles follow a pattern of a child going off to “meet” or see a particular animal in the wild, learning more about their behavior and habitats along the way, and answering the question of why one may or may not want to meet one of these wild creatures. This structure makes the series well suited to share with a group. There is a nice mix of subjects, from orcas to badgers, camels to owls. VERDICT Because of its uncommon format (for series nonfiction), this is a pleasant addition to animal collections for the very young. ”—Series Made Simple
