Can a shark and a robot really be friends? In this hilarious graphic-novel chapter book, what makes you different makes for an EPIC friendship.

Readers won't just laugh along, they'll identify with the real-life issues of making friends, accepting differences, and dealing with bullies in the best way possible. Perfect for reluctant readers and fans of Narwhal and Jelly and The Bad Guys.
