    Consie Berghausen "Jamison! A Shark Returns" August 1 Titcomb's Bookshop

Researchers confirmed the shark's return in June 2016 which inspired Consie to write a book for children called "A Shark! Named Jamison", and the sequel, "Jamison! A Shark Returns".

    Jamison! A Shark Returns is Consie Berghausen’s fifth published book, all illustrated by her daughter, Nina. Consie splits her time between the family homes in Chatham, Massachusetts and Tucson, Arizona. Nina is a graphic design artist and lives in California.
