A little boy tries out his new toy — a telescope — in the park and sees something disturbing through the eyepiece: a shark’s fin. “There’s a shark in the park!” he yells.
The circular cut-outs throughout Shark in the Park! allow the reader to see what the boy sees — although, turning the page each time reveals not a menacing ocean predator but something benign and the boy’s overactive imagination (though, do look out for the funny twist at the end of the book!). Nick Sharratt’s colourful illustrations and irrepressible rhyming text make this book a fun romp that both kids and their parents will enjoy.
