Synopsis

Nugget & Fang by Tammi Sauer, Michael Slack

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 humour to this undersea story of unlikely friendship.

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 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. . . .

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
