Two sharks, the ocean's most ferocious predators, try to resolve their differences by trading jokes and making each other laugh in this picture book about learning to get along with others.
Mako is a hungry shark and wants everything for himself. Tiger is exactly the same way. These two competitive sharks are definitely not friends. But then a hook from above is dropped in the ocean and Tiger goes for the bait. Mako knows what he would want Tiger to do for him and rushes over to help. Is it possible that the two not-so-friendly sharks might become friends? Once they trade their favorite silly sayings, it looks like that just may happen.
