Sharks

Shark vs. Train, by Chris Barton and illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld

Shark vs. Train

The unlikeliest foes of all time are put to a series of tests. One is a fearsome predator, the other a powerful example of human innovation. Contests, races, and video games are all necessary when trying to figure out who is better. It's teeth vs. wheels. It's beast vs. machine! It’s Shark vs. Train!
 
What starts as two boys’ simple search through a toy box spirals into the possibilities of pitting these very different opponents against each other and predicting what might happen. Now I know what you are thinking: there are a million differences between a shark and a train, and that is part of the fun. This book is the extreme equivalent of comparing apples to oranges.

Hi, I'm Arnold. I'm one of the kids in Ms. Frizzle's class. I knew we were in deep when Ms. Frizzle announced our unit on ocean life, and I was right. On our field trip, we ended up underwater and face-to-face with all kinds of sharks, from great whites to goblin sharks. Then, when things got scary and we were really swimming in trouble, you'd never guess who helped us make the GREAT SHARK ESCAPE!
