Curtis Manley

Curtis Manley grew up in Pennsylvania, where there were bears in the woods (and perhaps a few dinosaurs at school). But he never had to outrun sharks during recess—though he’s absolutely certain he could have. He is the author of Shawn Loves Sharks and Just Right. Curtis now lives near Seattle, Washington.

Shawn Loves Sharks

Shawn loves sharks.

He loves their dark, blank eyes.
He loves their big mouths full of sharp teeth.
And he loves pretending to be a shark and chasing Stacy around the playground.
