The only thing Bobby wants for his birthday is a pet shark. Any kind will do: a whale shark, or a bull shark or a lemon shark. So you can imagine his disappointment when his parents get him...a puppy. Everyone knows shark lovers can never become dog lovers. Or can they? Full of humor and heart, this
book explores the idea that sometimes, getting exactly what you don't want turns out to be exactly what you need.
