About this book

What if you woke up one morning, and you suddenly had the superpower of an ocean animal? If you could shapeshift like a giant Pacific octopus, you could squeeze through even the smallest gaps. If you could snap your claws like a coconut crab, you could slice through sheets of metal. And if you could sniff like a great white shark, you'd be able to smell treats from miles away!

With zany illustrations and amazing true facts, What If You Could Sniff Like a Shark? launches a brand-new series from bestselling creators Sandra Markle and Howard McWilliam. The What If You Could...? books have all the appeal of the What If You Had...? titles, but focus on animal superpowers and feature a fresh new design.
