Book Review:The Shark In the Park

Writing fiction for small children might seem to some like an easy outing for a writer, being that most books for children only have about one or two lines a page and are made up of fantastical and whimsical subject matter that does not have to follow some of the usual rules of writing a story, nor be as sophisticated as those for an older audience.

Like most tasks that seem easy from afar, the task of telling a story in such a short number of words is actually quite a feat, something that takes effort and extreme concentration. Engaging an adult reader in two hundred pages can be quite a task but imagine an author's burden when he writes for children. Not only must he craft a complete tale in a limited space but also hold the imagination and attention of a small child in a world filled with electronic distractions.
