Here is why I like and review this book. It was just the comical neutralizer we needed around here, with the boys' continual rivalry and one upmanship between their toys. Who is the best, the fastest, the highest, the most amazing? Who wins?

This book plays with this question by matching up unlikely rivals, the shark and train (and even frames it within two boys picking the two out of the toy box).

Shark vs. Train. Who will win? Well ..... it depends on what the contest is. From sword-fighting, to high-diving, to selling lemonade. Through this story, we find that each have their strengths (and weaknesses) in what turns out to be an even-matched battle in the end. AND, more importantly, sometimes the contest is just plain silly. So lets put the toys (and comparisons) away and go eat lunch.

The illustrations, as well, were top notch. And that I really look for.

Do you have little boys? Go read them this fun book.
