{Synopsis} – Every beachgoer knows that there’s nothing more terrifying than a… SHARRRK! But this shark is just misunderstood, or is he? In a wholly original, side-splittingly funny story, New York Times bestselling author Ame Dyckman and illustrator Scott Magoon take this perennial theme and turn it on its (hammer)head with a brand-new cheeky character.

The filming of an underwater TV show goes awry when the crew gets interrupted by a… SHARRRK! Poor Shark, he wasn’t trying to scare them, he’s just misunderstood! Then he’s accused of trying to eat a fish. Will Shark ever catch a break? After all, he wasn’t going to eat the fish, he was just showing it his new tooth! Or was he? Explosively funny, extraordinarily clever, and even full of fun shark facts, this surprisingly endearing story gets to the heart of what it feels like to be misunderstood by the people around you. With a surprise twist ending, our Misunderstood Shark will have kids rolling with laughter!

{My thoughts} – I enjoyed reading and paging through this book. It has incredible illustrations and the story made me giggle some. I think that any child that enjoys the ocean and learning about the animals within it could enjoy this book. It has some fun facts on the pages that helps to teach the reader things about the animals they may not have known before.

I recommend this book for any child’s library as its a fun read with incredible illustrations.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
