Land Shark by Beth Ferry, Ben Mantle


Land Shark by Beth Ferry, Ben Mantle

The only thing Bobby wants for his birthday is a pet shark. So you can imagine his disappointment when his parents get him...a puppy. Everyone knows shark lovers can never become dog lovers. Or can they? Full of humour and heart, this book explores the idea that sometimes, getting exactly what you don't want turns out to be exactly what you need.
