Will the flustered fish become saltwater snacks, or can they come up with a plan to teach the mean, greedy shark a lesson he'll never forget? With atmospheric underwater scenes and a terrifically toothy villain, this captivating rhyming story is perfect for reading aloud. Tremendously funny - with a biting twist!

This is a great book about how all the little fish came together to scare away the nasty shark and stop him eating them!  Lovely rhyming and fabulous illustrations, highly recommended.

I read it to mattieavfc aged 9 aged 9
The Shark in the Dark 9780230707351
5 stars
Since the age of 2 to now the ripe old age of 9, this is still Mattie's firm favourite choice of bedtime reading. We know all the words off by heart and we have our own very interesting interpretations of how the characters sound. The rhyming is great, illustrations are fantastic and I just love the moral of the story. I am sure this is a book that will be passed down the generations.
