Ariki and the Giant Shark

Ariki and the Giant Shark



A funny, touching and original mystery-adventure about a young girl living on a tropical island – the first in a new series. From multi award-winning author Nicola Davies comes a new adventure series, starring a young girl living on a tropical island in a sea full of islands. Washed up on Turtle Island as a toddler, Ariki has always felt different from the other children. But there’s somewhere she belongs heart and soul: the sea, where she plays with dolphins, sharks, whales and turtles. One day Ariki catches sight of a strange creature in the water, bigger than any she’s seen before – soon after, an enormous shark tooth is found on the sand. When a group of giant sharks start circling the shore, the island’s fishermen are too afraid to go out to sea. Without fish the people will starve. . . Can Ariki save the day? The first in an exciting new series, this book is strikingly original but has the feel of a classic: Ariki’s world is a timeless paradise, and children are sure to fall under the spell of this cheeky, charming little girl.
