Reviews

"Lang's wonder-filled narrative makes for an inspiring tale of a successful female scientist, with a decided emphasis on her successes...An excellent addition to any collection, particularly those looking to expand their stories of women in STEM."--School Library Journal


"Lang's welcome picture-book biography introduces a trailblazing female scientist...A clear, well-organized presentation likely to make readers and listeners want to know more about the 'Shark Lady' and her favorite creatures."--Kirkus Reviews


"Eugenie Clark's interest in sharks began early in life, when regular visits to the New York Aquarium led not to a fear of the giant fish but a fascination....an author's note provides more in-depth information on Genie, including a discussion of the discrimination she faced as both a woman and a Japanese American."--Booklist


"Pastel-like illustrations capture Genie's contemplative side, while sparse underwater scenes convey the ocean's mysterious immensity."--The Horn Book Guide
