This book is about a boy named Norvin that was a great actor. But they didn't have any shark movies for him to act in so he quit acting. So he started to swim and he could swim like a silver arrow through the water. But when he tried to swim like a silver arrow, he bumped into people. So he cut a dorsal fin out of plastic so he looked like a shark. He scared everybody a lot. So he had the whole beach to himself. At the end Norvin gets scared about something.
We recommend this book because Norvin learned a lesson. If you like sharks you'll like this book. We liked the illustrations because they really make sense with the words.
