Praise For Nugget and Fang (lap board book): Friends Forever—or Snack Time?…
"Sauer creates kindly characters and hits sweetly humorous notes throughout, avoiding a lesson-heavy tone. . . . [a] funny friendship tale."
"The text's cadence is well-timed for sharing aloud, and both narrative and illustrations zing with humorous touches. An entertaining tale that sends a positive message about the power of friendship and the importance of individuality."
—School Library Journal
"Incorporate this into fish- or shark-themed storytimes or share with "Finding Nemo" fans—either way, kids are likely to snap it up hook, line, and sinker."
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Slack's bright blue scenes are full of action, reaction, and witty details."
