What's got 3,000 tiny teeth and a 4-foot-wide mouth? The whale shark or "the friendliest shark in the sea," according to diver and photographer Jeff Rotman. But friendly or not, these school-bus-size fish can be intimidating as Jeff finds out! Join him on his quest to reveal the quiet mysteries of filter feeders such as the whale shark and basking sharks, and why these giant creatures need our help.

"Centered on the experiences photographer and diver Jeff Rotman, this set offers exciting insight into the world of sharks. Information on diving, photography, and Rotman’s life are interwoven with plenty of facts about the animals he studies. . . .With their focus on more spectacular species, Seeking Giant Sharks and Great White Shark have the highest appeal, but all four books are fresh looks at an always popular subject." - School Library Journal
