Shark Attack!

A Novel Study for Grades Four to Six

by Judi Peers

The East City Sharks think they have the county championship in the bag until their arch rivals reveal their secret weapon -- Spike McGarrity.
Team captain Matt Tucker is poised to lead Peterborough's East City Sharks to the county baseball championship. That is until the rival Lakefield Lions field their unstoppable ace pitcher, Spike McGarrity.
None of the Sharks can touch McGarrity's stuff, so they start to think of ways around him: remote-control baseballs, itching powder, laxatives in his water bottle. When Matt finally does think of a way to get McGarrity out of the game, however, things threaten to fall apart. The Sharks are finally left to rely on what got them to the championship in the first place: skill and teamwork.
Shark Attack is a lighthearted look at how fair play and high morale are vital to a successful team--win or lose.
