Norvin is a very good actor, but rather plain. In fact, he looks very like a shark, and more than anything, he loves to shoot through the water like a silver arrow. But his cunning plan to clear the water at Caramel Cove badly misfires...This funny tale written by best-selling author, Margaret Mahy, will amuse and delight children everywhere.
