Summary

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.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Most picture books don't come with a subtitle, but it so happens this subtitle neatly sums up the plot. Two unlikely underwater friends are torn apart when the minnow goes to school for the first time and finds out the truth about the shark. Nugget and Fang (you can guess which one is which) are introduced as perfectly compatible as they swim in deep ocean; one's grin is huge and toothy, and the other's is small but wide. But when the minnow keeps being told about the dangers of the shark, he begins to have doubts and swims far, far away. Slack's bright blue scenes are full of action, reaction, and witty details, but they also manage to capture the loneliness of the once-happy shark. (That fanged frown is huge.) Luckily for Fang, the author believes in happy endings and has the shark save the day for Nugget and nine fellow minnows, who all become Fang's friends. Ridiculous? Yep, but goofy good times anyway.--Nolan, Abby Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Sauer's bighearted tale, two fine, finned friends discover that conventional wisdom isn't always to be trusted. Nugget the minnow and Fang the shark have palled around forever in the deep ocean. But when it's time for Nugget to go to school, Fang feels left out. Meanwhile, Nugget is shocked by what he learns in school: "Sharks are toothy. Sharks are scary. Sharks and minnows can't be friends," he explains to Fang. Just when things look bleakest, Fang finds a way to win back Nugget's friendship and shatter the scary shark stereotype. Sauer (Princess in Training) creates kindly characters and hits sweetly humorous notes throughout, avoiding a lesson-heavy tone. Packed with visual gags, Slack's (Pass It On) digital artwork features varied blues and zingy dashes of orange, magenta, and neon green that make the friends' undersea home feel like SpongeBob Square-Pants's Bikini Bottom by way of Mary Blair. Fang's comparative enormousness and toothy grin help him steal most of the scenes in this funny friendship tale. Ages 4-8. Author's agent: Laura Rennert, Andrea Brown Literary Agency.
