Shark vs. Train

by Chris Barton

Illustrations by Tom Lichtenheld

First Release:

May 2010

ISBN: 9780316007627

Who will win the showdown between a shark and a train? That depends on the game. Train has an advantage when roasting marshmallows or giving carnival rides; Shark gains the edge when going off a high dive or bowling (especially if chewing up the pins counts as a strike). But piano recitals, Extreme Zombie-Squirrel Motocross, and sword fighting on a tightrope may be too close to call-yet. "Next time, you're history, soot-spewer." "Next time, you're sunk, squid-slurper." Full-color artwork.
