Shark VS. Train!
WHO WILL WIN?!

If you think Superman vs. Batman would be an exciting matchup, wait until you see Shark vs. Train.

Who do YOU think will win, Shark or Train?

[star] "This is a genius concept." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

[star] "Lichtenheld''s snarling shark and grimacing train are definitely ready for a fight, and his scenarios gleefully play up the absurdity. The combatants'' expressions are priceless when they lose. A glum train in smoky dejection, or a bewildered, crestfallen shark? It''s hard to choose; both are winners." -- Kirkus, starred review

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son's new favorite! I bought this for my 5 year old son, and it has become the new favorite book! I have had to read this with him almost every night for bedtime story ever since! He loves being able to pick the 'winner' at each competition, and gets a giggle out of the caboose's comments throughout the book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the hype I had heard a lot of hype about this book, on Facebook and Twitter. So I approached it with a little bit of hesitation. So many people were raving about it and I just did not get it. Yet when I read the book for the first time, I found it so wonderful I read it through a few times in a row. Two young boys go to the toy box to select toys for playtime, one a train the other a shark, then Shark and Train have battle after battle to see who is the best, strongest, fastest, smartest ... The adventures they have are fun, hilarious and extremely entertaining, as often only the imagination of a child can be. The book is well written and illustrated.

Editorial Reviews

"Barton''s deadpan text-sparked with dialogue balloons that give the characters both personality and one-liners is matched by Lichtenheld''s spot-on visual humor."-The Horn Book
