Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: 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.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2018 November #2
    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.
