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.

"Shark Attack is an admirable addition to the high-quality Sports Stories series. The well-written story is right on the mark for the intended audience of 8- to 13- year-old sports enthusiasts. Children will find much to appreciate in this wonderful mix of human interest and sports excitement. The creative and lively main character is easy to relate to, both in his folly and in his wisdom. This enjoyable book is likely to motivate baseball players to be great sports and is a great choice for any children's collection. Recommended."
