Shark vs. Train by Chris Barton


Shark vs. Train by Chris Barton

Shark VS. Train! WHO WILL WIN?! If you think Superman vs. Batman would be an exciting matchup, wait until you see Shark vs. Train. In this hilarious and wacky picture book, Shark and Train egg each other on for one competition after another, including burping, bowling, Ping Pong, piano playing, pie eating and many more! Who do YOU think will win, Shark or Train? With Tom Lichtenheld's hilarious and playful illustrations combined with Chris Barton's zany text, this irreverent picture book will have you both laughing out loud and eager for more crazy scenarios.


Barton's deadpan text-sparked with dialogue balloons that give the characters both personality and one-liners is matched by Lichtenheld's spot-on visual humor.
