The Lovereading4Kids comment

So many Lovereading members remarked on the delights of Gilbert the Great, that we felt we must tell you about the authors’ delightful follow-up called Gilbert in Deep. Wonderfully vibrant illustrations coupled with a text that will hook you and your child from page one. A little bit scary but it all comes good in the end. A must.

Synopsis

Gilbert In Deep by Jane Clarke

Gilbert the Great white shark loves to play hide-and-seek with his friend Rita Remora. But when the pair ignore his mother's warnings and take their game over the Edge and into the Deep, they find themselves out of their depth - quite literally!

Gilbert the great white shark is back! In this charming sequel to the extremely successful GILBERT THE GREAT. Gilbert learns to face his fears. Accompanied by Rita the remora, Gilbert disobeys his mum, heading off into The Deep and boasting, "Great white sharks aren't afraid of anything!" However, that isn't quite true! Gilbert encounters all sorts of scary things, from ghost whales to dark caves full of mysterious creatures, and finds himself in plenty of trouble. But his naughty behaviour lands him in the deepest trouble yet and he discovers that the scariest thing of all is an angry mum!

Jane Clarke on Jane Clarke:

I live in Kent with my two Labradors, Bramble and Amber. The dogs love to swim in the sea, so I burn a lot of perfumed candles to stop our house from smelling of damp dog.

Thanks to my Mum and Dad, I had a very happy childhood in the English Midlands. Dad attached a trapeze to the branch of a tree in our garden, and my friends and I spent a lot of time hanging upside down pretending to be acrobats. There were always pets – mice, hamster, and guinea pigs, cats and dogs. For a long time, I thought my dog was my brother. My bedroom was stuffed full of fossils and shells.

My ideas come from my family and pets, my friends and their families, and from school. I often lose all track of time when I’m writing. Amber and Bramble have learned to bring me their leads, to remind me to take them out for a walk.

Most of my stories and poems are funny, because I love to laugh, but sometimes I write about sad things. The saddest thing in my life is my husband’s death. Martin was a lovely man, a great husband and Dad. Andy and Rob are now at university and Martin lives on in them, in our hearts, and in our happy memories.
