Evie Wyld was a girl obsessed with sharks. Spending summers in the brutal heat of coastal New South Wales, she fell for the creatures. Their teeth, their skin, their eyes; their hunters and their victims. Everything is Teeth is a delicate and intimate collection of the memories she brought home to England, a book about family, love and the irresistible forces that pass through life unseen, under the surface, ready to emerge at any point.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A visual memoir with beautifully drawn illustrations by Joe Sumner." -- Danuta Kean * Independent on Sunday *
"Its minute observations and most unsettling moments stayed with me, like a shark tooth kept in a pocket, a souvenir of someone else's life." -- Charlotte Runcie, 4 stars * Telegraph *
"It is remarkable how an autobiographical - I stress this - book can enact a movement away from the self and become the repository of so much humility." -- Neel Mukherjee * Independent *
"Wyld tells the story of her obsession and fascination with the shark, and charts the undercurrents, tensions and joys of family life. Model-maker Joe Sumner's illustrations, full of tension and grace, are a haunting accompaniment." -- Louise Gorrod * Simple Things *
"Sumner's wondrous art is a perfect visual correlative to Wyld's spare lyricism." * i *
