The Shark Caller

By Zillah Bethell

Published Jul 2020



I want to be able to call the sharks.  You know this.  Teach me the magic and show me the ways.


Desperate to become a shark caller to avenge the death of her parents, Blue wing is instead charged with befriending the infuriating newcomer Maple Hamelon.  At first they are both angry, each harbouring a secret and resentful of the other’s world.  But when the tide breathes the promise of treasure, can they overcome their differences to find friendship and brave the deadliest shark in the ocean?


The Shark Caller is a spell-binding story of friendship, forgiveness and bravery, set against the beautifully woven backdrop of Papua New Guinea, inspired by Zillah Bethell’s childhood.
