About Scott Rothman, Mika Song & the Book!

Two sharks, the ocean's most ferocious predators, try to resolve their differences by trading jokes and making each other laugh in this picture book about learning to get along with others.

Mako is a hungry shark and wants everything for himself. Tiger is exactly the same way. These two competitive sharks are definitely not friends. But then a hook from above is dropped in the ocean and Tiger goes for the bait. Mako knows what he would want Tiger to do for him and rushes over to help. Is it possible that the two not-so-friendly sharks might become friends? Once they trade their favorite silly sayings, it looks like that just may happen.

Scott Rothman is a writer of picture books, humor pieces and screenplays. His debut picture book Attack of the Underwear Dragon and its sequel Return of the Underwear Dragon were National Indie bestsellers and a screenplay he co-wrote, Draft Day, was produced by Lionsgate as a feature film directed by Ivan Reitman and starring Kevin Costner. This is his third book.

Mika Song is a children's author/illustrator who makes stories about sweetly funny outsiders. Her recent work, Donut Feed the Squirrels, has been widely acclaimed and was published by Random House Graphic. Before picture books she was an animator. In 2015, she received the Portfolio Award at the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators Winter Conference in NYC. In 2020, A Friend for Henry by Jen Bailey and illustrated by Song received a Schneider Family Honor. She grew up in Manila, Philippines and Honolulu, Hawaii and calls New York her home. mikasongdraws.com; instagram: mikasongdraws; twitter: @mikasongdraws
