Summary

A charming and funny story of friendship, fine dining, and being true to yourself, from Tadgh Bentley, the author/illustrator of Little Penguin Gets the Hiccups—perfect for fans of Love Monster and I Don’t Want to Be a Frog!

Samson wasn’t like other piranhas.

While other piranhas stayed close to home

He wanted to explore the world.

And while they stuck to the same old routine, swimming and chomping and scaring,

Samson liked to try new things 

Most of all, Samson dreamed of eating fine foods at fancy restaurants.
 



So when not one but THREE new restaurants come to his corner of the sea, Samson can’t wait to try them all. There’s only one problem: With their big teeth and scary smiles, piranhas aren’t really welcome anywhere, let alone in fancy restaurants. Can Samson make his dream come true—and still be himself?
