love the part where it says, "I am not scared of the dark; the dark is scared of me!"

Don't worry, there are no spiders in this book about sharks. (Such a fun energetic read!)

A funny book to share with kids whether or not they have a fear of sharks.

I think Bob Shea books are hilarious! This was the first one I ever read by him and I think it's great! If you love sharks and are scared of spiders--like me--then you will love this book! ;)

Bob Shea's artwork, with its thick lines and bold colors, is a wonderful approximation of childlike exuberance. In his books, simpler is better, and all teeth are depicted as pointy, jagged triangles.

Nothing can scare Shark! Faced with squid, scary movies, getting shots at the doctor, or even the dark ("The dark is afraid of me! Dark heard I was coming and ran!") his courage is unwavering. "Aren't I awesome?" he boasts. But his friends, Fish and Crab, are skeptical. Everyone is afraid of something…right? Bob Shea's distinctively clever dialogue and sketchy, giggle-inducing illustrations ensure that readers are clued in to Shark's secret fear long before his friends are. Looking for another undersea tale of comic overconfidence? Check out I'm the Biggest Thing in the Ocean by Kevin Sherry.
