Out in the sea, Shark told his friend Lobster one day: "Lobster, I'm scared!" What could Shark possibly be afraid of? It seems somebody's told him about a thing that's full of teeth and stripes, and now he's scared of . . . tigers! Rumor has it these horrible creatures walk on their teeth, glow in the dark, and eat you up. Of course, there's nothing to be done but to build an undersea fortress that will shield Shark and Lobster from this terrible threat, and as word gets around, ocean friends from cuttlefish to spiky crabs get busy piling seven hundred rocks and an old piano to keep tigers away. But is their wall high enough to do the trick? Wouldn't a huge sea monster, big enough to swallow them all, do an even better job of protecting them?...

Shark and Lobster's Amazing Undersea Adventure Reviews

    Old Review: I can't wait to read this to my class. It is a fun story, with a lot of things to talk about. There is potential for it to be interactive, which is good. I shall rewrite this after reading the book with the kids.New Review: I was really excited to read this to my class of about 12 first graders, and fortunately they were excited as well. Before we read the book we talked a little bit about what scares them. Vampires, Zombies, etc. Then we read the first page, and they got to guess what Shark could possibly be scared of, most of the guesses were undersea creatures (which I had mixed feelings about). They learned what a fortress was, and what rubbish was, so they were able to take new words from the book, which always makes me happy. The best part though, was that it was fun. When we got to the bit about the monster in the deep sea they all inhaled in shock or mock terror. It was all ridiculously cute, one student said that she had a monster in her closet. Needless to say, the book was a hit, and they enjoyed having it read to them as much as I enjoyed reading it. Two students wanted to take the book home with them, and one thanked me for bringing it (because it was "such a cool book"). This experience encourages me to buy more awesome books to share with them.

    Shark and Lobster’s Amazing Undersea Adventure by Viviane Schwartz and coloured by Joel StewartThis book is much loved in the year four class I am currently working in, however it wouldn’t look out of place on the bookshelf in a year one class.The illustrations are captivating and hilarious. The moral of the story is important. And because it is set out in a comic book format the children do not realise that they are reading and learning.The dialogue between the characters is a great example for pupils to learn how to start writing dialogue within their own narrative, and – particularly in year 4 – it is great for learning how to get expression, emotion and morality into their writing.

    I asked my son what he thought of this library book. He said he thought it was scary! I asked him if he was glad I checked it out. He said he was. It’s a very fun comic book sort of format and you actually read the entire book on its side...which is very fun. It amuses me that they are all afraid of tigers attacking them in the ocean 🤔

    I originally picked this up as a possible book for my upcoming Shark DiscoveryTime for Preschoolers, but decided it probably wouldn't work well for storytime (though it was nice to find a non-scary picture book about sharks). This was a very silly story, but both my son and I rather enjoy reading it together. The whole book is longways, so it is top to bottom vs left to right pictures. Shark is very afraid of the tiger, a stripey, teeth-filled monster. His fear makes his friend Lobster afraid and they decide to built a fort. They are joined in the fort by a small cuttlefish who just happens to overhear their conversation, along with the cuttlefish, his friends and their families. Then they decide that the fort isn't enough, they need an even bigger monster to combat the dreaded tiger. So they go down to the deepest ocean and find the biggest monster they can find and bring the sleeping beast up to their fort to protect it. Only things don't go exactly as planned. Recommended for ages 3-7, 4 stars.

    I used to have nightmares about little red-eyed laboratory mice trying to take over the world. They wanted to feed me to boa constrictors at the zoo. I'd wake up in a cold sweat and think, "what a ridiculous thing to be afraid of." If there only had been some sort of children's book to help me deal with my irrational but understandable fear of lab mice. . .This is a great story about a great white shark that creates an undersea epidemic of fear because it is scared of. . . tigers. Shark, Lobster and friends attempt to gain a sense of security first by building a fort then by seeking the help of an under-water monster more fearsome than any tiger could ever hope to be. Needless to say this doesn't work all that well either, especially when the monster wakes up.

    A shark that is scared of tigers (!) is the somewhat unusual and silly premise of this picture book. The silliness of the idea will clue young children in on the fun right away. After telling lobster about tigers, he is scared too, so they work together to build a fortrees. Other animals join in to help, even the miniscule cuttlefish. Together they drag a sleeping monster from the deep to help guard thme (without informing the monster!) A fun format adds to the appeal: the book reads from top to bottom (have to turn it on its side) and it is much like a comic, with speech balloons and some pages broken into frames.

    The cutely dumb shark and his lobster friend are afraid of a thing that's full of teeth and stripes, walks on his teeth and glows in the dark and eats sharks up, A TIGER!!! they decide to build a fortress to be safe and all the lobsters and even the smallest cuttlefish help out but their fortress isn't small enough so they all decide to get a huge big MONSTER from the deep sea to protect them. The monster wakes up mad and roars and frightens the hell out of them. They notice that the shark is full of teeth and the lobster is full of stripes so they won't be afraid of anything!HILARIOUS adorable story!! Shaimaa cakes, you would absolutely love it!! They're sooo like us!! Lool

    This book is hilarious--shark is inexplicably scared of tigers. He gets all the ocean friends to build a fortress to keep them safe...including an enormous sea monster who is not happy when he wakes up.When shark tells lobster he is scared of tigers, I will ask the kids if shark should be scared. And why not? I love sharing books with kids where the reader knows a "secret" that the characters in the book don't and I often tell the preschoolers about it so they understand that we're in on something that the characters in the book aren't.

    Shark and Lobster hear rumors of a terrifying striped land creature called a tiger. How can they protect themselves? Build a fortress, of course! With the help of a lot of fish, a piano, and some crabs, they build an underwater fort. But will that be enough to keep them safe?A young audience will laugh at the ridiculous lengths shark and lobster will go to in order to defend themselves from an imaginary foe. There's also a great bit where the shark bursts into song, for those of you who like to mix up storytime a little.

    Silly and super fun story about a shark who's afraid of tigers and his friend the lobster who helps him create a fort to protect themselves from them. Interesting things I learned about tigers from this book: they glow in the dark, they are invisible until they eat you up, they are terrifying to sharks. Very enjoyable -- probably still too scary for my sensitive 2 year old, but I will try to remember this one in a few years.

    A shark is afraid of tigers. So he and his friend Lobster gather some friends and build a stone fortress with a piano for entertainment. They still don't feel safe. So they travel to the deepest part of the ocean and find a scary looking monster who is sleeping. They drag the sleeping monster to their fortress and wrap him around the stone wall. Then the monster wakes up and roars and scares everyone away.Stupid.

    Grades 1-3. Some people have really enjoyed this book-- but I had a hard time keeping track of what was going on. I thought it would be fun for a study of ocean animals. Different way of reading a book-- open it the tall way.

    Absolutely love this adventure with Shark and Lobster. The orientation of this book is so fun, as are the illustrations and dialogue. A great introductory book for a graphic novel study for elementary aged students.

    Charlie loves sharks so I thought this would be perfect. He liked the story okay. He liked the shark a lot. So thumbs up for artwork, but story just passed for him. Will have to try other shark stories.

    Not a great read-aloud and it didn't hold either of my children's attention at all.
