Clark’s intentions are good, but his voracious enthusiasm for school (where he’s the only shark pupil among smaller sea creatures) results in some awkward moments. “Munch your own lunch,” says his best friend, Joey Mackerel. “You are playing rough, Clark!” complain the other kids at recess. When Clark’s teacher gives him some advice—“Stay cool”—he turns it into a personal mantra, coming up with rhymes for occasions when good behavior is needed (“When teacher’s talking, don’t go walking”). Francis’s bubbly illustrations of overeager Clark and his friends create a lively undersea environment, and similarly rowdy kids may find Clark’s rhyming technique a useful tool. Ages 4–8. Author’s agent: Steven Malk, Writers House. Illustrator’s agent: Shannon Associates. (July)
