This was all time favorite book when I was in elements school. I got it at a school book fair and read it over and over again.i love this book. I even remember what the back of the book said.

Under the sea, where the fish played, sharpie the shark was always afraid. What good is a shark who is always afraid. I'll go far away we're no one will notice. Lilly the fish saw him leave and followed his lead....

Or something like that.
I love this book

Everyone is afraid of something. This book is a good choice to use if you want to have a discussion with children about being afraid of things and what would they do when they are feeling afraid. I would also use this to help students with recognizing rhyming words.

The shark was afraid of everything you could ever imagine. Until one day he came upon another little fish who was scared also, it was Sharkie's job to protect the fish. It was at that moment he realised he wasn't so scary afterall.
