The Shark in the Park by Mark Watson and Pablo Michau "Highly original, imaginative and thrilling." "The best illustrated children's book of 2014, hands down." "An old, old monster in a supposedly safe environment, one familiar to all. A walk in the park will never be the same again." "A hit! A brave and brilliant hit! An immediate children's classic." The air is misty, bright and cool, the morning Michael walks to school. At the boundary of the park he waits, nervously he hesitates. The day warms up, the sun shines down and Mike walks on, into town. Gnarly branches, crook and tight, curl around the ghostly light. Suddenly he freezes, weak at the knees, what is that swimming beneath the trees? Terrifying, funny, thrilling! This new, beautifully illustrated children's book is available in paperback and digital versions. The Kindle version includes links to exclusive interactive content. Hear 7-time Emmy award winner, ABC News correspondent, and currently the host of Primetime: "What Would You Do?," John Quinones read "The Shark in the Park" on youtube here... http: // Enjoy, and remember, it's just a story.

About Mark Watson

Mark Watson was born in England, Pablo Michau in South Africa, both now live in Mataro, Spain. "We met through our children, they attend the same school and are the only English speaking kids in their class." Mark is an English teacher in the little Spanish town and Pablo is a freelance illustrator/graphic designer. "After a brief conversation about our hopes for the future and our love of children's books we decided to take one of Mark's existing stories and put it together. We are much happier with the result than we could have hoped."

After their first collaboration Mark and Pablo have decided to work exclusively together on many more children's books, as Mark explains "Pablo has the ability to see the pictures I have in my mind, as a child walking to school through the park I used to daydream about a shark under the grass chasing me, not only has Pablo managed to capture the threat and fear of a giant shark, he has also managed to faithfully reproduce the park of my childhood, in all it's mysterious glory." Their next books together will feature a variety of new characters and animals, some familiar, some not.
