The complete story and original illustrations of THE SHARK IN THE DARK by Peter Bently and Ben Cort have been specially re-designed into a smaller early reader format. Created with expert advice from a literacy consultant, this new version offers children a natural next step on from picture books to support them as they grow in reading confidence. The Shark in the Dark is heading this way - and he's HUNGRY! Will the flustered fish become saltwater snacks, or can they come up with a plan to teach that greedy shark a lesson he'll never forget? This is a great series which, by using well-loved stories, will encourage young children to become enthusiastic, independent readers. - Dr Fiona Maine, Lecturer in Literacy Education, University of Cambridge Sixteen titles available in this series, including THE GRUFFALO, ROOM ON THE BROOM, WHAT THE LADYBIRD HEARD, HAMILTON'S HATS, CATS AHOY!, THE PRINCESS AND THE PIG and MONSTERS: AN OWNER'S GUIDE.
