The Shark Report: Benny McGee and the Shark

By: Derek Anderson

What would you do if a shark followed you home?

When Benny learns about sharks at school, he immediately feels worried. He definitely can’t go in the ocean, because sharks live there. But even simply staying out of the water isn’t enough, because a shark named Mr. Chompers follows him home! What will Benny do?

This humorous, highly-illustrated story is perfect for kids just beginning to read on their own. The short chapters, early vocabulary, and amusing illustrations make reading easy and fun! Exciting, easy-to-read books are the stepping stone a young reader needs to bridge the gap between being a beginner and being fluent.

Two-color illustrations.

Benny McGee has learned a lot about sharks for his report, but he is bewildered when a great white shark follows him home from school. He decides to let him in and learns even more things about sharks (for example, it takes them a really long time to brush their teeth).

He decides to let him in and learns even more things about sharks (for example, it takes them a really long time to brush their teeth). Young readers will delight in the combination of silliness and factual information. Every page has limited text (a few sentences to a few paragraphs) tucked in among cartoon illustrations. The art, rendered in grayscale with pops of blue, portrays the shark as simultaneously scary and adorably friendly. At the intersection of an advanced beginning text and simplest chapter book, this title has a lot that emerging readers will love and will keep them turning pages. A very simple beginning chapter book with charming photos. A purchase for most libraries.
