Searching for Great White Sharks: A Shark Diver's Quest for Mr. Big

Most people avoid great white sharks, but shark divers go looking for them! Diver and photographer Jeff Rotman goes to extremes to find and photograph great whites in their natural habitats. It takes a shark cage, a blood and fish recipe, patience, and courage to get up close photos of these powerful hunters. Discover the secrets of the great white, and what it’s like to meet one face to face.

NSTA Recommends - Teri Cosentino, 6th-7th grade science teacher

"...these four books in a beautifully illustrated, photographed, and written series of books about sharks shed a different light on sharks. Searching for Great White Sharks, Sharks of the Deep, Seeking Giant Sharks, and Journey to Shark Island all carry a common theme. Sharks are diverse, astonishing, and necessary for the health of the ocean." - NSTA Recommends

School Library Journal - Steven Engelfried, Wilsonville Public Library, OR

"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

Booklist - Sarah Hunter

"Sharks are up there with dinosaurs when it comes to kid appeal, and this title in the new Shark Expedition series does a great job of showcasing not only great white sharks but also the lengths that photographers go to in order to find them in the wild. . . .Well-reproduced, close-up photos of sharks...fill every dynamic, eye-catching page, and Cerullo’s concise paragraphs present shark facts in a clear, engaging, and often suspenseful tone. With a high-interest topic and a graphics-heavy layout, this would be a hit with reluctant readers, as well as researchers." - Booklist
