Nugget and Fang are the best of friends. They do everything together and go everywhere together. Until one day Nugget has to go to school and Fang isn't allowed. You see, Nugget is a minnow and Fang is a Shark. Every lesson is about the dangers and hazards of sharks. Nugget knows in his heart they aren't true, at least he hopes not. He finds it is kind of hard to stick to your beliefs when everyone else around you believes something else. Fang desperately misses little Nugget and tries to prove himself a true friend in many ways. Will Nugget ever trust his friend again? Will the other minnows realize that not all sharks are the same? Read this cute and colorful picture book to find out.
