The Lovereading4Kids comment
Witty writing with lots of shark-infested humour. Gilbert is a shark with a softer side. He has had Raymond, his pet friend 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. The book is read by Dervla Kirwan with plenty of music and sound effects to go with it. Great stuff to listen to and read at the same time. All children will identify with this delightfully scary follow-up to the hugely successful and equally fun Gilbert the Great.

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!
"Tenderly told... A cosy and witty picture of shark life" - Guardian
