Can a shark really fit in at Mini Minnows Elementary, or will he be a fish out of water? The popular undersea pals Nugget, a minnow, and Fang, a shark, are back in this first-day-of-school story that's full of heart and humor.

When Fang the shark is invited by his friends to attend Mini Minnows Elementary, he thinks it's a great idea! But then his first day of school arrives . . . and suddenly, he's not so sure. He's not very good at reading or math. He doesn't exactly fit in with his classmates. And the teacher looks crabby! Can Fang's best friend, Nugget, and the other minnows turn things around and prove to him that school really isfang-tastic?

This reassuring first-day-of-school and friendship story is full of heart and humor, showing that everyone feels like a fish out of water sometimes, and that it's important to be a good friend.

Tammi Sauer, a former teacher and library media specialist, is the author of many popular picture books. She lives in Edmond, Oklahoma.
