Gr 2-4-Twisted sentence structure, tongue twisters, forced rhyme scheme, and lack of a consistent cadence make this offering a difficult read-aloud. "See this wonderful boat bobbing here on the water?/It's my Super-Stupendous Shipshape Shark Spotter" is one of the better-scanning lines, but still is a clunky read. Written at an almost fourth-grade reading level and illustrated in a cartoon style, the book's intended audience is unclear. Older students would be better served by reading a nonfiction text about sharks, many of which are listed in the back matter, including David Doubilet and Jennifer Hayes's Face to Face With Sharks (National Geographic, 2009). Readers should skip right to these additional resources. Buy only where the TV show is popular.-Kelly Roth, Bartow County Public Library, Cartersville, GAα(c) Copyright 2013.

The Cat in the Hat, assisted by Thing One and Thing Two, escorts two children into a “super shark tank” aboard a distinctly Seussian vessel. With unrelenting four-line rhymes, the Cat introduces us to “car-ti-lage,” “den-ti-cles,” the amazing features of shark skin, sharks’ self-replacing teeth, scientists’ tagging of sharks, and page upon page of introduction to various species. Example: “With its wide pectorals, / the angel shark lies flat / and as still as a rug— / will you look at that?” Though it gets a bit exhausting, the art wonderfully emulates Seuss, which makes audience attention practically a sure thing. Grades K-2. --Daniel Kraus --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
