The Lovereading4Kids comment
Gilbert is a shark with a softer side. He has had Raymond, his pet remora, since he was just a tiny pup. They have swum through the seaweed together and played finball, tide and seek and Sardines with their fishy friends. But one day, Raymond is no longer around. Gilbert is heartbroken and needs all the help that his kind mum can give him to get though the loss. But, having grieved, Gilbert learns to get up and live – and love – again. A tender story about the pain of losing someone you love.
Gilbert the Great by Jane Clarke
A story of a little Great White Shark and how he comes to terms with the loss of his remora, Raymond.
"this is a book to share. A parent can read it when a child has lost a pet, a family member, or a best friend moves away. A teacher can keep it on standby for when these situations arise in the classroom.. Gilbert really is great." The Bookbag
