Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meagan Albright
Sammy the shark and his sister Sophie are very happy to see their favorite babysitter, a little fish named Anna. Unfortunately, Sammy has a tendency to bite things when he becomes excited. Sammy crunches on nearly everything in the house: playing cards, the television set, even the bathtub. Will the babysitter be eaten as well? This book could be used to discuss ocean life, sea creatures, or nutrition. Children will love the fun story line; engaging characters; and bright, colorful pictures. The illustrations contain secret details—cook books in the kitchen (one entitled Cooking Humans), cute snail cupcakes, a glass of water (complete with a straw), sippy-cups in the water-filled living room, a pet catfish curled up in a basket, a blanket initialed WWF (Whale Wrestling Foundation)—and each page holds at least one hidden gem. The only sticking point comes on the very last page, when a little fish swims past with a text bubble stating "Don't eat the babysitter, will you." This phrasing may not come naturally to most Americans; the sentence structure, common enough in England, is awkward to a US audience. Every other aspect of the book translates well; it would be an excellent addition to a collection and great for use during story time.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-The shark that starred in Don't Eat the Teacher! (Cartwheel, 2002) is back. Here, an enthusiastic Sammy accidentally bites everything in his house. Anna, a prim and proper little fish, patiently guides and protects him and his little sister, Sophie, as he chomps down on a deck of cards, the television, and the bathtub. Luckily, the amiable babysitter is able to escape his open maw. Visual gags abound with a bust of Neptune, a WWF (Whale Wrestling Federation) bedspread, and Jaws toothpaste. Humorous, but additional.-Linda M. Kenton, San Rafael Public Library, CA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Sammy is a rather excitable shark, who tends to bite things when emotions run high; in his last outing, Don't Eat the Teacher (2004), it was his schoolmates and supplies. So, when the favorite babysitter arrives and engages Sammy and his sister Sophie in lots of fun activities, destruction is the result. When Anna serves their favorite dinner, Kiddie Fingers, Sammy eats the supper tray. A rousing game of cards ends with the deck in Sammy's tummy. And when a giant octopus appears on the television screen and the announcer explains that it eats small sharks, well, the outcome is obvious. Before Mom and Dad return, Sammy devours the bath, his pillow, bed and cupboard, and narrowly misses eating Anna herself. Many children will identify with Sammy's behavior when he is excited, but there is no attempt to rein him in, just a recognition of his exuberant spirit. Will appeal to the shark lovers more than to the parents of their own wild child. (Picture book. 3-7)
