Reviews & Endorsements:
'In this thrilling underwater odyssey, Conlon's richly-textured playful prose once again intertwines so exquisitely with Izlesou's sumptuous images. In a word? BUY!' - James Carter children's poet/ non-fiction writer/ educationalist
'It is incredibly important for young learners to appreciate the beauty of our oceans from an early age. That is why it is great to see books such as Swim, Shark, Swim!, with its fascinating story of the journey of a black tip shark as it travels around the world, meeting other sharks and marine creatures along the way. The illustrations are colourful and really bring the pages to life. Hopefully young readers and their families will be inspired to find out more and how to support ocean conservation and awareness raising efforts in the UK and abroad, after being inspired by reading this book.' - Susannah Rodgers MBE, Ocean Ambassador (Marine Conservation Society UK).
