Early hardcover copies have already been popping up at Scholastic Book Fairs all over the nation.
And I was really relieved and happy to sink my teeth into the reviews:
“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.”
—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
“Goofy good times.”
