The Great White Man-Eating Shark by Margaret Mahy

Margaret Mahy has written many great books over the years. We all have a favourite of hers and we probably haven't read many of her works either (there are so many).

The Great White Man-Eating Shark is a very clever twist/parody of The Boy who cried wolf.

In this version, the boy actually has a purpose when crying wolf, he wants the beach, all to himself.

This book is called an early reader, which means it is a stepping stone from picture books to reading (chapter) books. But don't let this book fool you, as there are many words that are good for discussion with your wee one. Words like resentful, wicked and dorsal are just some words that will help children gain a bigger vocabulary.

There are also many other Early Reader series books, but only The Great White Man-Eating Shark is a Margaret Mahy book.
