Shark VS. Train! WHO WILL WIN?!

If you think Superman vs. Batman would be an exciting matchup, wait until you see Shark vs. Train. In this hilarious and wacky picture book, Shark and Train egg each other on for one competition after another, including burping, bowling, Ping Pong, piano playing, pie eating, and many more! Who do YOU think will win, Shark or Train?

[star] "This is a genius concept." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

[star] "Lichtenheld's snarling shark and grimacing train are definitely ready for a fight, and his scenarios gleefully play up the absurdity. The combatants' expressions are priceless when they lose. A glum train in smoky dejection, or a bewildered, crestfallen shark? It's hard to choose; both are winners." -- Kirkus, starred review

Who will win?

Well, that depends on if they’re…

in the ocean…

or on railroad tracks.

If they’re on a seesaw…

or in hot-air




eating pies…

or having a

burping contest.

It depends on whether

they’re bowling…

shooting baskets…

or going off

the high-dive.

Running lemonade stands…


or giving rides at a carnival.

It can depend on who

gets to pick first…

who names

the game…

and who deals

the cards.

But who wins

if they’re…

playing hide-and-seek…

or trying not

to get shushed?

Performing in a piano recital…

or playing Extreme

Zombie-Squirrel Motocross?

Exploring distant galaxies…

or sword fighting

on a tightrope…


End of the line.
