'Shark Lady: The True Story of How Eugenie Clark Became the Ocean's Most Fearless Scientist' by Jess Keating with illustrations by Marta Álvarez Miguéns is a non-fiction picture book about a pretty amazing woman.
When Eugenie Clark was 9, she developed a unique interest in sharks after a visit to an aquarium. She was told they were mindless killing machines, but Eugenie challenged that. She was also told that women weren't good scientists, and she challenged that as well.
It's told and illustrated brilliantly. It's accessible to read to little ones, but the content doesn't lessen the accomplishments that Eugenie accomplished. At the end of the book, there are facts about sharks, and there is a timeline of Eugenie's life. There is also a great author's note along with a list of further reading. This was a great book.
