Olien, Jessica. Shark Detective! Balzer + Bray, 2015. $17.99. ISBN 978-0-06-235714-4. Unp. Ages 4-8. P8 Q8
This is a funny story and great for engaging children’s imagination. It starts by introducing Shark who lives all alone but dreams of becoming a detective. He is hired to find a cat, he about gives up but finds cat who wants to hire him to help Cat find his mouse toy. In the end Cat invites Shark to come and live with him and his family. I like how in the end Shark finds a friend and a home and then Shark and Cat become detectives together.
