Children's LiteratureSmiley Shark is a very friendly shark who wants to "splish and splash with the other fish." However, his smile frightens all of them away: Angelfish, Puffer, Starfish, and all the other fish. Smiley Shark doesn't "feel much like smiling anymore" after frightening everyone he approaches. When all the fish are trapped in a net, however, Smiley Shark is the only one who can save them by doing what he does best: smiling. The tale, albeit simplistic and predictable, will certainly entertain any child. Galloway's colorful and whimsical illustrations provide lots of visual interest for the child who does not yet know how to read. There is a good contrast to the pages as well: some are crowded with illustrations, other have a few large objects. The sounds are written in big, bold letters and will be fun for the child to say along with the parent or teacher reading. The text is also simple enough for the child first learning to read. "Smiley Shark" would be a good book to have in a classroom or at home.
