I have to be honest and say when I saw this book that I wasn’t interested in it. I thought it would be a picture book with nice sharks. Not in the mood for that. But then I saw it was a comic, and I was curious. My plan was to read it the next day, but instead I immediately downloaded and started reading it. My hubby who was next to me got curious about what I was reading when I kept showing him pages and so we ending up reading and laughing. We both had a lot of fun.
This book is about animals in the sea (oh and a human who at times pops up on the surface). Mostly we see a shark going through the daily things. Going to work with a fish tie and he becomes the best of friends with him (yes really). Not sure if it is the same shark, but we also see a shark with a little shark, celebrating birthdays and trying to build things (though I would recommend real hammers not hammersharks). But we also meet other animals, from fish who have those little lights in front of them switch from normal lights to Christmas mode, or the narwhal who wants to make a selfie and lets a friend hang a camera on his nose/horn. There is plenty to see and plenty to laugh.
But next to laughing, this book is filled to the brim with positivity, that one should persevere despite the outcome not looking positive, happy message, everyone is helping the others, there are inspirational quotes (I would truly call them that). It gave me a big fluffy feeling and I was definitely in the need for that. With COVID (not sure how bad the situation is when this review goes live in Februrary, but in the end of November things are going up and down and there is still plenty of worry about things) raging around for the past 8/9 months I could definitely use a fluffy and happy blanket of positivity and humour.
The illustrations are fun as well, I love the style and I love how the animals were drawn.
All in all, if you need something funny and inspirational be sure to check out this wonderful and fun book! Recommended!
