Bentley, Tadgh Samson: the Piranha who went to Dinner. PICTURE BOOK. Balzer + Bray (Harper), 2017. $18.
Samson the Piranha has a much finer palate then the rest of his piranha family. When he ventures out to try the fancy new restaurants, though, his sharo teeth frighten away the diners and the help, no matter how hard he tries to disguise him self. If he is every going to be able to satisfy his taste buds, he’s going to need to be very creative.
Bentley manages to make a piranha adorable! Samson doesn’t succumb to his plight; instead he perseveres and reasons his way though. Utterly charming!
