There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The writing is creative, good natured, and lead to long discussions about the "epithats" - - explaining why the shark made a joke about steam, for instance....and the illustrations are super cute, too - and lead to discussions about why the shark could win a diving contest but the train couldn't (the train is WAAAY too heavy, it's made of steel and heavier than many cars and the shark lives in water, so he's probably a really good diver....).
All in all, a GREAT book.
But the story seems like it's cute and we love this illustrator.

Trains and Sharks are big time favorites for both of my kids so it was a given they would be interested but after one read through of this book the kids are screaming "AGAIN"!!
The story is funny and the pictures are great - my five and two year old both love it and I think they will for quite a while.
