The Spinescape® was specifically selected because sharks are a high-interest topic to students K-12 and World Book has a desire to support shark conservation, "There are a lot of misconceptions about sharks out there," says Tom Evans, World Book's Editor in Chief. "Sharks have the reputation of attacking human beings. But fewer than 80 shark attacks a year are reported throughout the world," adds Tom. This year's Spinescape® comes from the award-winning photographer, Tanya Houppermans, who gave up her job as a mathematician to research and help with shark conservation.
