I’m not sure if this book is a reflection of our political world or just funny. Is Shark an intentional liar or maybe someone who shades the truth to reflect better on himself, no matter how absurd?
Every time Shark is reminded that people are watching him, it turns out he isn’t really going to eat a fish. Maybe he wants to show someone his cool new teeth. Maybe he’s only returning a baby seal to its parents. Maybe he’s sharing his fine supply of bandages with the bloody-kneed human.
The ocean gets its saltiness from the tears of misunderstood sharks!
Or so we are told.
Is he really lying to us? Maybe we all just need a hug. But not a shark hug. Definitely not a shark hug.
