Flip and Fin, the irrepressible sand shark twins, want to save the day—just like their favorite TV superheroes. So off to the beach they go, for a bright, funny adventure that will tickle fans of Finding Nemo and SpongeBob SquarePants.

Faster than a sailfish! Tougher than a clamshell! Inspired by their favorite TV characters, Flip and Fin are determined to save someone’s day. But whose? They swim right to the shoreline with their two best friends, ready to find someone in peril. And when they get there . . . Aaaaaah! Shaaaaark! What could all the people on the beach be afraid of? It’s a job for the super sharks! This fish-in-the-water adventure is full of goofy humor, and young readers will delight in figuring out what’s so scary long before Flip and Fin do. The perfect pick for summertime—and Shark Week—story times. Includes a glossary of facts about sand sharks.

Praise For Flip & Fin: Super Sharks to the Rescue!

“Cartoon-style watercolor illustrations and witty text will engage readers and have them rooting for the heroes…The good-natured, goofy humor mixed with the bright watercolors will have young ones giggling. Perfect for seasonal storytimes and superhero fans.”
— School Library Journal

“The manic merriment is enjoyable from the get-go, and audiences will get a huge kick out of the heroes’ situational misunderstanding. The watercolor and pencil art is zippy and playful...Simple sentence structures and lots of repetition make this equally suitable as a read alone.”
— Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
