Nugget and Fang Friends Forever - or Snack Time? by Tammi Sauer


Nugget and Fang Friends Forever - or Snack Time? by Tammi Sauer

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.


It's darn near impossible to resist such an earnest, toothy hero.

Sauer creates kindly characters and hits sweetly humorous notes throughout, avoiding a lesson-heavy tone. . . . [a] funny friendship tale.

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.

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.

Slack's bright blue scenes are full of action, reaction, and witty details.
