There isn't a creature in the world Stanley doesn't adore. Pigeons, snakes, penguins, worms, elephants, you name it. But the animals Stanley goes really mad over are... SHARKS! Even though he's never met one, he knows a lot about them from his good friend, Dennis, who also happens to be Stanley's pet goldfish. In many ways, goldfish are a lot like sharks. They both have fins and gills, eat their meals underwater--why, they're even related! ("Though they are distant relatives and rarely keep in touch.") Stanley figures if he can look after a goldfish, he can probably look after a shark. Or can he?
Griff (a.k.a. Andrew Griffin) has created a delightfully humorous story, with plenty of honest-to-goodness shark facts painlessly thrown in for good measure. Big-headed, sparsely coifed Stanley and his glum pal Dennis (you'd be glum too, if you were going to have to share your home with a massive cannibalistic relative) are a terrifically appealing pair. Griff's clever computer-generated illustrations are full of verve and personality, with witty, often subtle details. The small print on the shark food packaging reads: "No artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. People may accidentally be included in this product. Store in a damp environment. Not suitable for vegetarians." This picture book, however, is suitable for vegetarians, carnivores, and any other dry-land critters. A simple, interactive CD-ROM is included, with games, facts, screen saver, and much more. (Ages 4 to 7) --Emilie Coulter
