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.
My 4 year old really enjoyed this story. It's a great story about acceptance, and judgment. Nugget is told he should be afraid of his friend Fang just because of who he is, so Nugget slightly distances himself from his friend, but his friend Fang doesn't give up trying to be Nuggets friend, and in the end saves the day. We all really enjoyed this one, and my daughter has added it to her nightly rotation.
