PreS-Gr 1--Clark the Shark is back and going on a class field trip to the farmer's market. All he has to do is remember and follow the three rules Miss Inkydink tells them, but talking when the teacher talks means you can't hear the instructions. Clark can't help but be distracted and get separated from his class during the field trip, but all ends well when Clark remembers the directions and avoids disaster. The book finishes with some "bite-sized" shark facts, delicious! Readers will love sinking their teeth into Clark's newest adventure, with its colorful illustrations, lots of white space, and engaging story line. VERDICT A great addition for easy reader sections.--Melisa Bailey, Harford County Library System, MD
