Where is it?

In this new Misunderstood Shark story from New York Times bestselling duo Ame Dyckman and Scott Magoon, Shark dares to ask the question: can friends eat friends (and get away with it)?

The filming of an underwater TV show goes awry when the crew gets interrupted by a... SHARRRK!

Poor Shark, he wasn't trying to scare them, he's just misunderstood! Then he's accused of trying to eat a fish. Will Shark ever catch a break? After all, he wasn't going to eat the fish, he was just showing it his new tooth! Or was he?

Explosively funny, extraordinarily clever, and even full of fun shark facts, this surprisingly endearing story gets to the heart of what it feels like to be misunderstood by the people around you. With a surprise twist ending, our Misunderstood Shark will have kids rolling with laughter!

Booklist Review
In this delicious sequel to Misunderstood Shark (2018), the action picks up without a hitch as naturalist TV host Bob the jellyfish, justly annoyed at being eaten and then barfed up in the previous episode, roundly scolds his great white acquaintance, whose protestations of innocence ( But I swear on all the bones in my body ) are as fishy as his luridly toothy grin. As before, each exchange comes spiced with a tasty term ( gastric eversion ) or fact ( You don't HAVE any bones in your body. Shark skeletons are made of cartilage! ), anxious side remarks from the multispecies camera crew, and a broadly brushed marine scene that Magoon enhances by floating in the odd comical prop, anatomy chart, or loud body sound. When Bob at last signs off, it's with a promise of more chewy facts to come. Definitely one to dish up alongside Ryan T. Higgins' We Don't Eat Our Classmates (2018), Heidi McKinnon's I Just Ate My Friend (2018), Elanna Allen's Poor Little Guy (2016), and other culinary-themed disquisitions on social proprieties.--John Peters Copyright 2018 Booklist
