Misunderstood Shark Friends don't eat friends

Ame Dyckman

Book - 2019

Bob, host of Underwater World with Bob, is furious with Shark, not only because Shark ate him (admittedly bad manners), but because Shark will not even admit what he did; the ocean may not be big enough for both of them--unless Shark faces up to his bad behavior, stops sulking (and eating the animals on the program, and maybe barfing up his stomach) and apologizes.

Review by Booklist Reviews

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. Grades K-1. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

Bob, host of Underwater World with Bob, is furious with Shark, because Shark ate him, and Shark will not even admit what he did; Sharks feelings are hurt too, so mutual apologies may be the only way for the show to go on.

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)?Last time on Underwater World with Bob Jellyfish..."SHARK ATE ME! Now get me OUT, Shark!""That's strange! I can hear Bob, but I can't see Bob!"This hilarious follow-up to Misunderstood Shark by New York Times bestselling duo Ame Dyckman and Scott Magoon tackles what it really means to be a good friend. Bob is already irate that Shark has eaten him, but when Shark doesn't admit to eating him, Bob is so mad he declares that the ocean isn't big enough for both of them! Friends Don't Eat Friends is exploding with over-the-top humor and awesome marine facts! For example, when Shark overdoses on Finilla Ice Cream after fighting with Bob, we learn that shark teeth are coated with fluoride. Lucky for Shark, he can't get cavities! Join Shark and the gang for another story and find out if Shark learns his lesson about friendship, or if he really is just misunderstood -- again!
