We have already talked about these out-of-this-world fairy tales here:

I looked at it now and realized that everything is written there so correctly that there is nothing to add or subtract from, but we must continue to convince you that this book is worth reading!
I’ll tell you more about one of the fairy tales, which differs from the rest in that it looks like a detective story, and not a parable. It is tense, dynamic and bloody - a detective story after all, not baby talk.
A series of murders take place on an elite beach, fur seals, platypuses and sloths die tragically. The suspect is known, but difficult to reach. This is a huge shark Kara. A world-class specialist, a shark penguin, is invited to catch the criminal. He arrives with his shark suitcase, containing night vision goggles with jellyfish lenses, mussel test tubes with drops of blood, a can of cuttlefish ink, a thin algae net... It’s immediately clear that this is a professional. He is laconic and cold, but this is external, but in his thoughts he is always with his wife, for whom he does all this.
So the chase begins. If you want to catch a shark, think like a shark, act like a shark. The race is very tense, the advantage is on one side or the other, and when our superhero is on the verge of death,... who comes into play? Of course, his old partner, long retired. A flabby, dejected skeptic with a tragic, of course, life story. Everything is mature, as you can see.
The shark will be caught, but it also has its own history and motives for the crimes. What do the depths of the sea hide?
