Gilbert the Great

Illustrated by Charles Fuge

About The Book

'From the time Gilbert the Great White Shark was a tiny pup, Raymond the Remora stuck to him like glue...'Then one day, Gilbert wakes up to discover that Raymond has gone. Mrs Munch does everything she can to help her little shark come to terms with his loss and – slowly but surely – Gilbert learns to smile a wobbly smile through his sadness. He knows that Raymond will always be in his heart and, when mum takes Gilbert to the wreck, a chance meeting helps him find happiness once more. Jane Clarke’s heart-warming story, exquisitely illustrated by Charles Fuge, is funny and sad in equal measure. It will touch anyone who has experienced the pain of losing a friend or the joy of making a new one.
