Jack sets out in a tiny boat to discover the magical Farallon Islands, all on his own. Armed with a tuna fish sandwich, some Kahlua Crunch trail mix, and a lot of absurd ideas about his sailing skills, Jack is on a collision course with some very sharp teeth. A marvelous adventure turns into a battle with nature's most vicious carnivore.

"John Fisher ("Jack"), a remarkable story-teller, captivates us with his intensity and charm. Fisher's Shark! ends with a shocking twist, as he plumbs the depths to explore the character's daring. Join him on a thrilling, dangerous ride!" Patricia L. Morin, Theatrius
