About the Book

It's a shark! No wait, it's a dog! It's Shark Dog!

From author-illustrator Ged Adamson comes the funny and sweet story of Shark Dog: half shark, half dog, and a one-of-a-kind pet.

Shark Dog is no ordinary pet. Sometimes when he does dog things, he's more like a shark. And sometimes when he does shark things, he's more like a dog. But when Shark Dog gets homesick, he starts thinking maybe he belongs with the other shark dogs. Will he go back to Shark Dog Island or decided to stay in his new home? With quirky and colorful art, Shark Dog! is perfect for fans of such funny books as Hello, My Name Is Octicorn and The Adventures of Beekle.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Young readers will be easily won over by the plump, eager, stubby-limbed pup...” - Booklist

“A hilarious selection that’s sure to please a picture book crowd, particularly one composed of children fascinated by dogs, sharks, or both.” - School Library Journal

“The absurd notion of a semi-canine, semi-aquatic pet, complete with long, slobbery tongue and pointy, daggerlike teeth, will delight young readers who love land and sea creatures.” - School Library Journal

“Fans of Eric Carle’s The Mixed-Up Chameleon will enjoy this rollicking, goofy, wholly unconventional picture book.” - School Library Journal
