Praise for Shark Vs. Train New York Times BestsellerParent's Choice Silver HonorA Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year--

*This inspired pairing, executed with ingenuity and packed with action and humor, is a sure winner."--School Library Journal (starred review)
*"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 Reviews (starred review)
*"This is a genius concept ... Just when readers will think the scenarios can't get more absurd, the book moves into even funnier territory. ... Lichtenheld's watercolor cartoons have a fluidity and goofy intensity that recalls Mad magazine, while Barton gives the characters snappy dialogue throughout."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Barton's imaginative and wacky scenarios are knocked home by Lichtenheld's ferociously funny artwork and will leave kids measuring up their dump truck and T-Rex for the next tale of the tape."--Booklist
"Barton's deadpan text-sparked with dialogue balloons that give the characters both personality and one-liners is matched by Lichtenheld's spot-on visual humor."--The Horn Book
