Shark Girl sees the world in a worried way, while her good friend, Belly Button, has a more positive outlook on things. Together, the friends take readers on five mini adventures—writing a letter, making paper dolls, going to a party, visiting the playground, and appreciating the value of things, especially one’s friends. This intimate set of stories combines humor, emotion, and insight, inviting readers to look beyond physical appearance into the thoughts and dreams we all share.
