“Such boy fun when a shark and a train try to outdo each other. Each page brings a funnier situation than before, and by the end, everyone is laughing. A great read aloud with perfect illustrations.”
— Valerie Koehler, Blue Willow Bookshop, Houston, TX

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.
