A fun-filled undersea story exploring bullying, friendship and the true meaning of courage, based on Aesop's classic fable, The Lion and the Mouse.
Sharky McShark is the biggest bully in the deep blue sea. When she's around, the clownfish clear out, the flatfish flee - even the rocks get out of the way. Sharky has no friends and she doesn't want any!
But one day, a teensy wee crab tumbles into Sharky's life . . .
A fantastically fishy adaptation of the classic fable The Lion and the Mouse, with a strong message about friendship and giving others a second chance.
