Sam Wu is NOT Afraid of Sharks!, Paperback / softback Book

Sam Wu is NOT Afraid of Sharks! Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Nathan Reed

Part of the Sam Wu is Not Afraid series

Paperback / softback

Description

Brilliantly funny new young series about the bravest scaredy-cat in the world Sam Wu is NOT a scaredy-cat (except when he is). And when a shark TOTALLY tries to eat him at the local aquarium, he decides he's not going to take any more chances.

So at his friend's birthday party at the beach, Sam refuses to dip even a toe in the water.

Nothing could go wrong now, could it? A wonderful belly-laugh of a book, perfect for young fans of Tom Gates and Pamela Butchart. 'Intensely likeable and sharply observed comic capers' - Guardian Illustrated fiction is still having something of a boom, but if you're looking for a non-white protagonist it's slim pickings indeed.

Happily Sam Wu is about to change all that. A hero of Asian heritage with a diverse set of friends... it's enormous fun, madcap and relatable - Bookseller Also look out for Sam is NOT Afraid of Ghosts and Sam Wu is NOT Afraid of the Dark! Katie and Kevin Tsang met in in 2008 while studying at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Since then they have lived on three different continents and travelled to over 40 countries together. Kevin was born in Copenhagen and grew up in Atlanta, Georgia.

Some of Sam Wu's experiences are based on Kevin's childhood.

Katie was born and raised in Southern California. She has previously worked at Booktrust and also writes YA as Katherine Webber.
