Description

Shark's not afraid of anything.

The dark?

Nah.

A big mean bear?

Don't make him laugh!

But there is one thing that even Shark fears. . . . Can you guess what it is?

Praise For I'm a Shark

“Audiences will warm to the toothily and smugly beaming shark who smirks his way through the pages so guilelessly that boastfulness becomes downright cute. Warm up your performance skills for the exclamatory narrative, and watch your audience become a school of kid-sized great whites before your very eyes. ”
-Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“There will be no need to fear for Shark’s enduring popularity; here he proves he’s one refreshing delight.”
-Kirkus Reviews

“The oversize but spare drawings of a boastful young shark declaring his bravery guarantee giggles.”
-School Library Journal

“Good for non-scaredy-cats everywhere.”
-ALA Booklist

“Shea’s shark has the unbridled confidence of the hero of his Dinosaur vs. Bedtime. It’s almost impossible not to imagine the shark facing off against the egotistical squid of Kevin Sherry’s I’m the Biggest Thing in the Ocean for undersea supremacy.”
-Publishers Weekly

Praise for OH, DADDY!:“The gentle humor evident in the contrasts between text and pictures, as well as the scenes of the father doing things outrageously wrong, will keep kids entertained.”
-School Library Journal (starred review)

Praise for OH, DADDY!:“Busy parents will want to try this formula of patience plus humor.”
-Publishers Weekly
