It's the battle of the century! Shark and Train are going head-to-head in the ultimate war for supremacy as two brothers try to prove which of their favorite toys is the very best. When Train and Shark are in the water, Shark definitely wins! Train is better at roasting marshmallows and burping, while Shark wins at bowling and diving. But when it comes to playing video games, neither toy does very well. How will the boys ever decide the winner? The scenarios the brothers put these toys in are laugh-out-loud funny! Lichtenheld's illustrations are hysterical with great captions you don't want to miss. Boys will devour this "fin-tastic" story!
