Friends forever - or snack time? In the deep ocean, tiny Nugget and big, toothy Fang get along swimmingly-until Nugget's first day of minnow school. There Nugget learns that minnows are supposed to be afraid of sharks! To regain Nugget's trust, Fang takes desperate (and hilarious) measures. But it's not until his big sharp teeth save the entire school that minnows learn this shark is no foe. Fantastically stylized artwork adds even more humor to this undersea story of unlikely friendship.

Editorial Reviews

It's darn near impossible to resist such an earnest, toothy hero." - Kirkus "Sauer creates kindly characters and hits sweetly humorous notes throughout, avoiding a lesson-heavy tone. . . . [a] funny friendship tale." - Publishers Weekly "The text's cadence is well-timed for sharing aloud, and both narrative and illustrations zing with humorous touches. An entertaining tale that sends a positive message about the power of friendship and the importance of individuality." - School Library Journal "Incorporate this into fish- or shark-themed storytimes or share with "Finding Nemo" fans - either way, kids are likely to snap it up hook, line, and sinker." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Slack's bright blue scenes are full of action, reaction, and witty details." - Booklist "
