Book Review: Misunderstood Shark by Ame Dyckman and Scott Magoon


The filming of an underwater TV show goes awry when the crew gets interrupted by a... SHARRRK! Poor Shark, he wasn't trying to scare them, he's just misunderstood! Then he's accused of trying to eat a fish. Will Shark ever catch a break? After all, he wasn't going to eat the fish, he was just showing it his new tooth! Or was he? Explosively funny, extraordinarily clever, and even full of fun shark facts, this surprisingly endearing story gets to the heart of what it feels like to be misunderstood by the people around you. With a surprise twist ending, our Misunderstood Shark will have kids rolling with laughter!

Who do we believe? The newscaster? The shark's words? The shark's actions? If you have junior debaters in your house like I do, it might take you twenty minutes to get through to the end of this picture book! Warning, it may inspire even more outrageous excuses in your near future ("I didn't EAT you...I'm playing hide-and-seek with you!")

Dyckman and Magoon are well-known names in children's book hilarity, and this one is another hit! Since the copy I received is an ARC, I will be making an order card for a hardcover shortly!
