Cartoon of a person wearing a shark fin strapped to their back looking at themselves in the mirror.

Norvin is a good actor and a terrific swimmer, but he has a face that looks like a shark. He uses his acting talents and a fake fin to scare swimmers out of Caramel Cove so he can have it all to himself. He is so convincing, he eventually finds himself the love object of a female shark. Animated version of the book by Margaret Mahy.
