Save your friends from the big, bad shark in this hilarious interactive picture book by South Korean artist Hyewon Kyung!

This laugh-out-loud adventure encourages family sharing and is a perfect pick for fans of Deborah Diesen's The Pout-Pout Fish and Adam Rubin's Dragons Love Tacos.

Help! There is a shark in the water, and he's eating all your friends! Only you can save them from being swallowed whole. How? Turn the page and find out! This funny story about a playground bully, friendship, and empathy will have kids laughing along as they hurry to save their friends (all marine animals) from the shark's dangerous jaws. And in the end, readers learn why the shark is acting so rudely in the first place!

Hyewon Kyung's Save Your Friends! has an unusual, lively concept; a surprise ending; humorous illustrations; and a simple, repetitive text that is presented in conversation bubbles. Save Your Friends! makes reading fun and is a great choice for emerging readers, story time, and anyone who loves to learn about sharks.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Readers urged to turn pages to save a little angelfish, a baby seal, and a succession of other sea creatures from a shark's gaping mouth may initially agree with one fish's estimation that That shark is mean! at least until the shark, opening even wider to reveal the big hook embedded in its palate, begs a saving page turn of its own. Thank you! exclaims the relieved shark on the next spread as the freed hook sinks away. You are a good friend. Bye! Though the huge predator is last seen chasing a sea turtle, Kyung closes with further bids for sympathy in the form of a plea to Save the Sharks! (though she doesn't explain from what) and a page of shark facts. Dominating the marine scenes and mostly seen head-on, the shark's toothy maw will induce delighted shivers in young viewers even as the comments of a floating peanut gallery of rescued victims and other by swimmers in dialogue bubbles lighten the drama. You can almost hear the Jaws theme in this interactive outing.--John Peters Copyright 2019 Booklist"
