Margaret Mahy; pictures by Jonathan Allen, p. c. Norvin wore the expression a great white man-eating shark always wears when it is hungry, and his acting was so good, that even when he came up to breathe, people were convinced he was actually looking for prey. It was a very hot day, but nobody dared go swimming again. Norvin had the whole of Caramel Cove to himself.

Mahy tells this "Cautionary Tale" in a quietly comic, deceptively simple style inspired by her usual marvelous dry wit. Allen's appropriately cartoon-like illustrations wonderfully extend the humor, making Norvin truly shark-like-both mischievous and menacing-and depicting the other swimmers.

Reviews:
  • Jorad
My son watches Qubo, and Sammy's Story Shop featured this book and I thought it was really cute. Norvin is an excellent swimmer, but doesn't like to share the cove he enjoys swimming in with other people. So *spolier alert* he pretends to be a shark to scare everyone away and keep the cove to himself. But Norvin quickly learns a lesson in selfishness, and the consequences you may suffer if you don't share. I thought my husband would like the book, but he didn't like it as much as I do. Regardless, we'll continue to read this great story to our little boy.
  • Gugrel
I use this book every year as the intro to a project with my 2nd graders. After reading about and seeing Norvin dressed up as a shark, I have them make a new "Halloween" costume for Norvin. Their creative efforts never fail to surprise and impress me.
  • Amarin
6 year old grandson loves the book.
  • Tall
This book is LOVED by children in lst and 2nd grade. It is a feature on Book Flix where I became aware of it.
  • Malarad
This book had ripped pages and food on them! Unacceptable
  • Arcanefist
My son likes scary things, but gets frightened by most! He loves this book because it features a (not-too) scary shark and a (not-too) scary situation. Norvin, a boy who looks amazingly like a shark, learns the hard way not to 'cry wolf' -- or, in this case, 'cry shark'! Adult-ish humor included for those reading to the little ones -- I love this book.
  • Alien
My twins (almost 5 years old) absolutely love this book. They are shark-fanatics, and the cautionary tale of the main character teaches a valuable lesson as well as entertains with delightful illustrations and story line. Mom and Dad thoroughly enjoy this book as well!
