The Shark in the Dark
I borrowed this book from the library... again ..and again.. and again. It is fantastic, a firm favourite of both my five year old daughter and two year old son, who can repeat the whole book as you turn over each page! The rhymes are excellent to read out loud and the ingenuity of the little fishes gets me every time I read it. A thoroughly enjoyable read.

OK, lets keep this one short, this book is fantastic. How's that? LOL Seriously though its great, a well written story for the younger market with beautiful colourful pictures that will keep them amused long after the stories been told that will turn this from an occasional read to a firm favourite. Add to the mix the moral of brain overcomes brawn and you've got something a little special to enjoy. Perhaps even a story to inspire the next generation of Jacques-Yves Cousteau's.

'Childrens books' is an area where there are so many excellent books. I have to say The Shark in the Dark stands out amongst the best. My children think it is 'Cool' - they love the story and illustrations - we read it over and over again. For something different - and fun - Highly recommended!

Great rhyming story with lovely illustrations, has lovely rhythm and is fun to read aloud, bought with Cats Ahoy to go with Pirate-themed gifts and both books were enjoyed by the adults too (well, I love them!)

This is the book that began my 2-year-old's passion for sharks and an ongoing game of 'not getting your bottom sharked' on the stairs or running and jumping between 'boulders' or 'islands' in any available space. She also loved the 'Oh heck!' page as she called it, and the sharks fin-to-mouth expression here - it's still known as an 'oh heck face' in our house.

The text is funny, energetic and stands many repeated readings; and the shark is just the right level of menacing for the target age group to enjoy. I like the colouring too - it has a good underwater feel.

This is a decent kids book. By that I mean, it keeps my little one amused, I have read it around a dozen times so far to her, and it does not make me lose the will to live. Some of the books she has make me want to groan when she asks for them, this one doesn't.

Kids had read this at nursery and demanded I buy it one day, but after searching all the bookshops in town, we couldn't find it anywhere. Hurrah for Amazon - good price, quick delivery and the book now takes pride of place in our bedtime story pile. I'd never heard of it until the kids asked for it, but I soon learned to love the quirky rhymes and storyline with a twist. My daughter loves it so much she can now recite the story from memory!! Great buy....
