Shark in the Park on a Windy Day!

Publisher: Picture Corgi

Nick Sharratt's unmistakable illustrations grab the attention in one of two Shark titles he has created. Timothy Pope has a telescope, and on a visit to the park with his Dad one windy day he spots lots of things which can look like a shark fin when seen through a telescope. As readers look through the peep-holes to the following page there's the opportunity to guess what Timothy might be looking at, and join in with the catchphrase.

Bright colours, bold humorous images and plenty of detail offer numerous opportunities for discussion between readers. Sharratt's illustration catches the windiness to great effect, and readers can see how the effect of the wind, and using a telescope changes what we see.
