The Shark in the Dark – Peter Bently

Our local School Library Service introduced us to this picture book as part of their ‘Dive into Books’ reading challenge.

The children love it and were soon joining in.  The rhyme makes it perfect for reading aloud.

The beautiful illustrations are very atmospheric and I can just imagine some creative work based on these illustrations.  The pure genius behind the little fishes plan to trick the shark is wonderful, something the children can relate to.

I’m sure I will have to buy more than one copy for our library as it will be in popular demand.
