Rafe Martin and David Shannon reunite in this folktale interpretation of a dramatic flood myth set amidst the unmatched beauty of the Hawaiian Islands. In a country whose ruler is cruel and whose people are hardened, two children remain warm-hearted and exuberant. Title: The Shark God Author: Rafe Martin Illustrator: David Shannon Genre: Myth Theme(s): Hawaii, Animals, Rulers, Gods/goddesses Opening Line/sentence: It was long, long ago when two children, a brother and sister, tried to find someone to help them save a shark.

by Rafe Martin & illustrated by David Shannon. When the hard-hearted king condemns them to death, their parents pay a call on Kauhuhu, the Shark God, who summons up a great wave that destroys the village, frees the children, and washes the reunited family on its way toward a distant, kinder home. Shannon peoples his island scenes with sturdy, tattooed, mahogany-skinned figures, but Kauhuhu, magnificently huge and ferocious, is by far the most powerful presence here: human in form, but with silver skin, decidedly sharklike features, and an immense toothy mouth tattooed across his shoulder blades.

Because they freed a shark caught in a net, the fearsome Shark God rescues a brother and sister from the cruel king's imprisonment and helps them find a new, peaceful kingdom across the sea. Notes.

One day after freeing a shark trapped in the shallows, the children are so excited that they touch the King's forbidden drum. They are thrown into prison, and no one will listen to their parents' pleas for mercy. So, at great risk, they go to the Shark God himself, and he takes retribution, causing a great flood that leaves only the good family behind, and clears the way for a better, kinder future.
Reviews:
  • Yananoc
Though not bad, the story is short and overly simple, probably because the author altered it from the original legends and made it more Americanized. However the artwork is where this book really shines, and is probably worth the price on that alone. I bought it as a gift for my Godson who likes sharks.
  • AGAD
Supposed to be new, but it had a "From the library of John H" sticker in it.
  • Rose Of Winds
I was very disappointed. The book was written in!
  • Vonalij
I used this book with 8th grade students to teach the folktale genre. None of them had ever heard it and they really loved it! Great story!
  • Thabel
David Shannon ("No David") channels the spirit of Gaugin in this book. You can hardly believe it's the same artist. The story is thematically challenging for the early reader (6+). The protagonists are asked to place their trust in a shark god, which is portrayed with a touch of quiet malevolence. Yet they are rewarded for their kindness and faith. A beautiful, haunting story.

My son picked "The Shark God" as a reward for a reading challenge at his elementary school. He has requested this story be read and reread to him multitudes of times and has yet to tire of it. The story provides him a glimpse into a culture that he would not otherwise get. When we get to the page featuring the shark god, my son's eyes are big with awe. I like how Rafe Martin made changes to create a family that my son responds to. And I had not made the connection about the illustrator being the one who wrote and illustrated the "David" books, which all my sons love!! This would make a great gift book as the story has the excitement kids love and the education parents want.
