Publisher’s Synopsis: 

Hi! I am Great White Shark, and if you get this book, you’ll read all about ME–the greatest shark in the sea!

Not so fast! Greenland Shark here, and as the oldest shark in this book, that makes me the greatest.

Did someone say fast? I’m Mako Shark, and I’m the fastest shark in this book! Eat my bubbles!

Wow, I’m Hammerhead Shark. You don’t need my special eyes to see that there are lots of great sharks in this book. Sink your teeth into it now!

I Am the Shark is an exciting and fun learning experience that kids of all ages are sure to love. To be honest, I went into this expecting a short little story about sharks with some cute pictures. I was happily surprised at what I got instead. This is a story about sharks, narrated by a great white and how he is the best shark at different things. He keeps meeting other species of sharks that are better than him at everything he can think of. Not only do we get a cute story about sharks, there's also a message about loving yourself for who you are. And on top of that, there's so much fascinating information about various sharks! I learned some interesting things while reading this book. I loved meeting all the other shark species and finding out some cool facts about them. There are also little factoids sprinkled throughout the pages to give the reader more information on sharks - but it's done in a fun way so kids will enjoy it. On top of this wonderful story are the illustrations. I loved them so much! Each page was filled with vibrant colors and adorable sharks. There were so many different colors and every page had it's own feel. The illustrations went along perfectly with every aspect of the story and brought it all to life in a cute and fun way. I highly recommend this book for kids - and adults! - of all ages, especially those who are practicing reading and little ones who still love being read to.

New York Times bestselling author Joan Holub makes a splash with bestselling illustrator Laurie Keller to deliver an entertaining undersea story that encourages self-acceptance and self-esteem, and is filled with humor and the greatest shark facts in the ocean!
