Sarah says:

Maybe you don't get the reference.  Maybe you think it's from Calendar Girls (bigger buns) and not originally from Jaws (a bigger boat). Regardless of whether you recognise the quote or not, we love the humour in this pocket sized notebook, it's ideal for shark, notebook and film lovers alike. 

The shark fin reference in the illustration is simply a nod to the genuis of Steven Speilberg. 

The quote is from Jaws.  Some people think it's from Calendar Girls and are under the impression that they came up with that quote rather than it actually being a wonderful spoof of one of the most famous lines in movie history, and frankly to think that, well it's just very embarrassing. 

The quote from Calendar Girls is actually, "we're going to need considerably bigger buns".  Notice the use of the word "we're" because they all are in it together for a good cause.  In Jaws on the other hand, there are three men up against a man eating shark and it's very much a "you're gonna need" situation - you are, not me, it's your boat, you should have thought about this before and now it's every man for himself.  And if you haven't seen it, he did need a bigger boat.  The shark ate most of his boat and him. 

The two others got away and you're happy for them, you feel a little sad for Captain Quint but he really should have gone out and got himself a bigger boat before he tried to catch what you can clearly see from the movie poster is the world's biggest shark. 

The book, yes that's what we're actually talking about, has 30 pages of gorgeous 120gsm lined pages. 

To put 120gsm in to real world context standard printer paper is 80gsm.

It's small but perfectly put together.  Like Quint's boat, until the final third of the film when it gets completely trashed by a really angry shark.
