I’m Getting a Shark!

We rated this book:


Everybody wants a pet, but when I think of a pet I think of a dog, cat, or rabbit. In this story, a little girl wants a pet. She thinks she is going to be getting a shark as a birthday present. She imagines what kind of shark she will get. What will it do? Where will it live? What will it eat? Those are just some of the questions she must answer. Is a shark as a pet a good idea? Her insanely super-smart dog, Ralphie, will try to help her answer some of these questions to determine if a pet shark is right for her and her family.

The illustrations in this book are incredible and have vivid colors. The story is funny! The illustrations help to show what a terrible idea having a pet shark is! I mainly like the smart talking dog Ralphie, who gave facts about each shark. There is valuable information in the story about how we can help sharks and their environment. I like the message that even if we can’t have a shark as a pet, we should help keep them alive in the wild.
