Ricardo Cortés’s stunning seascapes follow the story of a shark that has a story to share about creatures who live above the ocean. At its surface, our shark encounters strange-looking creatures who resemble nice, caring marine biologists. But after they release it back into the ocean, the shark cannot find one friend to believe its tale. Filled with humor and warmth, this book will charm children and parents alike.
Really lovely pictures, and a fun little story. I especially like the way that this whimsical story could be used to spark a discussion about the importance of understanding different perspectives. And did I mention the pictures are really lovely?!
