Shark vs. Train by Chris Barton

A shark and a train go head-to-head in this epic picture book! Which one will be the best? Join the fun as these two challenge each other to every kind of contest imaginable (and then some). Bowling, pie eating, ping pong… you name it, these two will take up the gauntlet with silly, sometimes surprising results!

Shark Vs. Train is a fun and funny read that parents and children will both enjoy. The pictures are bright, detailed, and engaging. I especially love the in-book commentary from the shark and train (as demonstrated in the following lemonade stand show-down).

To top it all off, the end of the story has a fun and light-hearted twist that aids to the overall charm and playful nature of the book.

If you’re looking for more humorous picture books that both parents and children will enjoy, read Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin or The Book With No Pictures by B. J. Novak. All these and many more can be found at the Virginia Beach Public Library.
