Reviews

Nick Sharratt's loud, distinctive, illustrations are always sure to attract pre-schoolers. Shark in the Dark, a sequel to Shark in the Park, will delight his followers . . . Told in a jaunty rhyme and full of humour - especially the nice twist at the end - this is one for ages four and up to read in the half-light for full effect * Irish Examiner * It is the exhuberant exclamations such as quivering catfish that make this a delight to read aloud and children will be reading this under the duvet long after lights out * Brighton Argus * A wonderful choice for small kids everywhere * Sunday Business Post (Eire) * As with all Nick Sharratt's books, the language and rhyming patterns are superb and really engage young readers * Hot Cross Mum *
