About the Author:

Peter Bently studied languages at Oxford. He lives in the writer-filled town of Totnes with his wife and a perfect ready-made audience of two young children. He enjoys visiting schools and sharing his writing. Inspired by living close to the sea, THE SHARK IN THE DARK is Peter's first picture book for Macmillan. Ben Cort studied illustration at Harrow College. His first picture book for Macmillan, COLOUR ME HAPPY (978-1-4050-0909-6) was published in 2007, and his work for Campbell Books, including MUDDLE JUNGLE, has enjoyed great success.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1—The best part of this book is the cover, which has a cutout resembling sharp teeth through which readers can see a hungry shark surrounded by frightened fish. In rhyming text, children learn about the creature that just ate but wants more, the "shark in the dark." Many kinds of fish are highlighted as they see their potential attacker. While they are escaping, they chance upon a friendly squid that comes up with a plan to make sure that the shark never eats in their neighborhood again. The last page shows an illustration of all the fish forming a whale, and the text states that working together is the best way to solve a problem. Young children will probably love looking at the appealing cartoons, and the text will pull them right into the story. However, Lio Lionni's classic Swimmy (Knopf, 1963) tells the same story.—Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City END
