Misunderstood Shark 2

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!

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!"

Praise

In this delicious sequel to Misunderstood Shark (2018), the action picks up without a hitch as naturalist TVhost Bob the jellyfish, justly annoyed at being eaten and then barfed up in the previous episode, roundlyscolds his great white acquaintance, whose protestations of innocence (“But I swear on all the bones in mybody”) 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.
