“It’s Reef Day!” said Fang. “I can’t wait to compete in the race around the reef.”
“That sounds swim-tastic!” said Nugget. "Count me in!”
With sweet humor and simple math, Nugget and Fang race two tuna, a clown fish, and each other to see who will win the race on Reef Day. WIth a wheel to spin and pull tabs throughout the book, readers will find great joy in helping the vegetarian Fang chomp on a seaweed snack, hide the clownfish in the sea anemone, toss the tuna in a spinning whirlpool of bubbles, and helping Nugget and Fang finish the race strong. Readers will also discover how working together just might mean more than winning the race.
