Editorial Reviews

Review

“Audiences will warm to the toothily and smugly beaming shark who smirks his way through the pages so guilelessly that boastfulness becomes downright cute. Warm up your performance skills for the exclamatory narrative, and watch your audience become a school of kid-sized great whites before your very eyes. ” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

“There will be no need to fear for Shark’s enduring popularity; here he proves he’s one refreshing delight.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“The oversize but spare drawings of a boastful young shark declaring his bravery guarantee giggles.” (School Library Journal)

“Good for non-scaredy-cats everywhere.” (ALA Booklist)

“Shea’s shark has the unbridled confidence of the hero of his Dinosaur vs. Bedtime. It’s almost impossible not to imagine the shark facing off against the egotistical squid of Kevin Sherry’s I’m the Biggest Thing in the Ocean for undersea supremacy.” (Publishers Weekly)

Praise for OH, DADDY!:“The gentle humor evident in the contrasts between text and pictures, as well as the scenes of the father doing things outrageously wrong, will keep kids entertained.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

Praise for OH, DADDY!:“Busy parents will want to try this formula of patience plus humor.” (Publishers Weekly)

I asked my 4 year old granddaughter what she wanted for Christmas. She said she wanted a shark book. I asked what else she might want. "Nothing else, just a shark book." I searched for an appropriate book for a 4 year old girl and found this. I read it as soon as it arrived. I loved it. I loved the way it was written and the illustrations. I loved it so much I ordered another one to keep at grandma's house.

Bob Shea is brilliant. Perhaps we just have matching senses of humor, but this book just cracks me up. The illustrations are bright and colorful, and the humor is just a little different than most books for the toddler age bracket. My 3-year old son and (almost) 5-year old daughter love this book too and love to read it along with me.

My wife loves it because she thinks it is hilarious how much I enjoy this book.

"A big, mean spiderless bear? Bring it on!"

We have all the books in the "Dinosaur vs." series, so this seemed like a great book to add to our collection. My girls (ages 4 and 6) both love it. Bob Shea never disappoints ... we thoroughly enjoy his humor and writing style! Excellent illustrations as well.

When my sister and I found this in a shop, we were laughing hysterically. It's about a shark who is not scared of anything ,... except spiders. It's really cute and sweet way to show kids that no matter how big someone is they have something that scares them too.

Shark brags about how he is not afraid of anything, but there might just be one thing he is afraid of!

"I'm a shark! Aren't I awesome?
When I get a shot, I don't even cry.
I can watch scary movies without closing my eyes.
If there were a dinosaur here and he saw me, you know what he would be?
Scared!"

Clever, funny text with great illustrations.

Not quite the magic of the Dinosaur vs series (of which we have every one) but still pretty fun. Even sharks have a weakness. ;)

And I absolutely loved that I could buy it for kindle on my iPad. It looks lovely and my kid adores "turning" the pages.

My 18 month old loves this book! Reading it in the different voices is such a joy and my son laughs every time the "fearless shark" screams, "Ewww, Spiders!!" I highly recommend this silly and highly entertaining book!

This is probably my favorite Bob Shea book, and we have several. My son loves to bring this book over to me, because he knows I'll read it multiple times a day. I love the story and the illustrations. Great book for kids and adults!
