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. Also look out for Sam is NOT Afraid of Ghosts and Sam Wu is NOT Afraid of the Dark!

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. Katie and Kevin currently live in London. Sam Wu is NOT Afraid of Sharks is the second book they have written together.
