Book Overview A fun and surprising book with an ingenious die-cut from the hugely popular Nick Sharratt.

This crafty interactive picture book is 100% bliss and very toothsome indeed . . . The very young will enjoy all the changes of perspective and the jokes . . . A book that will have them squealing with delight -- Lyn Gardner * Guardian *
The hole in the page in Shark in the Park is the best use of this apparently simple device since PEEPO! by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. Sharratt's upbeat illustrations and rhyming, rhthymical text . . . Simple and satisfying, with audience participation guaranteed -- Jill Slotover * Financial Times *
Bliss! , will be the reaction from Sharratt's many young fans: 15 pages of crisp design, nifty cut-outs, visual thrills and a pacy tale of what a little boy sees through his telescope -- Sally Williams * Independent on Sunday *
Sharratt's use of die-cut components is very clever. The bold cartoon illustrations use a two-dimensional plane that perfectly accentuates critical aspects of the images. Contains the kind of humour that pre-schoolers find so very funny . . . jolly good fun * Books for Keeps *
Shark in the Park is an unequivocal success . . . the book is infused with a rather exhilarating sense of wonder and encouragement to explore new ways of looking at the world -- Magda Healey * thebookbag.co.uk *
