Kindergarten-Grade 2-When Sammy Shark is nervous or excited, he tends to chomp on whatever is near, be it the kitchen table or his friends. This presents a problem when he goes off to school, as he is both nervous and excited. The predictable havoc results. Sammy tries to contain himself, but in the course of the first day he eats bulletin boards, books, easels, and (alas!) his teacher. Asked at the end of the day what he has learned, Sammy tells his mother that one must eat none of these things, but especially not the teacher. The silly story, which maintains the slapstick humor of the English original, will have children chiming in on the word "Crunch!" Sammy is a sympathetic character who knows he should do better and intends to when he calms down. Ward's cartoon illustrations, while a bit pedestrian, do present his toothy, smiling hero to good advantage.
