The complete story and original illustrations of THE SHARK IN THE DARK by Peter Bently and Ben Cort have been specially re-designed into a smaller early reader format. Created with expert advice from a literacy consultant, this new version offers children a natural next step on from picture books to support them as they grow in reading confidence.
The Shark in the Dark is heading this way - and he's HUNGRY! Will the flustered fish become saltwater snacks, or can they come up with a plan to teach that greedy shark a lesson he'll never forget?
