The Shark in the Dark

The Shark in the Dark

Written by Peter Bently

Illustrated by Ben Cort

Amazon Link: £3.87

Published by Macmillan's Children's Books

Not to be confused with "Shark in the Dark" by Nick Sharratt, Peter Bently's book features a big fat bully of a shark who spends all day trawling the oceans for small fry to eat. The fish have had enough, and thanks to a wily squid they come up with a plan to put the bully firmly in his place. 

"The Shark in the Dark" is great, there's acres of mileage in any story set under the sea and Ben Cort's illustrations pick out the various sea life effectively. 

I do personally prefer "Shark in the Dark" but Charlotte prefers this book instead. Kids eh? What can you do with 'em!

Charlotte's best bit: Nemo!!

Daddy's favourite bit: The bully getting his comeuppance. Always good to see in a book.
