List Price:

After his most klutzy move ever, falling into a pool of sharks, things for Tristan Hunt begin to look up. Tristan is invited to an ocean-themed summer camp in the Florida Keys where he discovers that he and the other young teens there have very special and rare talents when it comes to the ocean. After the camp receives a distress call from ocean animals, Tristan and his new friends get pulled into a daring rescue in the Bahamas. With the help of sharks, dolphins, a quick-escape artist octopus, and some seabird bombers, the campers must use their young talents in an attempt to outwit an evil shark-finning, reef-blasting billionaire.

"Ellen Prager's depth of knowledge as a marine scientist and undersea explorer shine through in this gripping story of a boy and his friends, each blessed with powers that enable them to solve some of the real problems facing the ocean today. The Shark Whisperer is packed with science, laced with humor and adventure—an underwater Harry Potter, sure to inspire readers to want to dive in and experience the ocean for themselves."

Sylvia A. Earle, National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence

“Like author Rick Riordan, who mixes adventure with Greek myths, [Prager] writes books that include action and humor, science and sea creatures.”

The Washington Post, KidsPost
