Imagine grown-ups books with accompanying CDs. That would be awesome. Gerry Paul, you know what to do.
Well, until then we have Hank the Wrestling Shark, which is a very good thing indeed. Our young hero meets Hank off the beach at Bondi, and promptly engages in a match of strength, skill… and smarts. Yay, hero!
Hank the Wrestling Shark is great stuff, total fun to read aloud and fantastically illustrated, with lots of little extras that will catch the eye of any kid. If you’ve had to read aloud a picture book to kids you know how important that kind of stuff is – it gets them thinking, puts their imagination in gear, and just generally makes the reading a fun time.
Plus it comes with a CD of three songs: Hank the Wrestling Shark, Tugboat and Wobble Like a Jellyfish. It’s party time, kiddies!
Gerry Paul won the 2010 John Lennon Songwriting Contest with the song Hank the Wrestling Shark, and is an all-round generally talented musician working and collaborating with major artists and producers. This is illustrator Tom Armstrong’s first book. So the kids are in talented hands.
Plus if you buy Hank the Wrestling Shark directly from the author’s website at www.hanktheshark.com http://www.hanktheshark.com/books $1 gets donated to the Child Cancer Foundation… and it’s only $28 including p&p.
