Clark the Shark, the kid with the killer smile, is happy when his teacher makes an announcement.
"CLASS, NEXT WEEK IS THE SCHOOL SING!"
Clark is psyched! He begins to belt out the first line of their song, "When You're Happy and You Know It," He loves that song! Most of the class already know it, and they are soon belting it out with bravado, too!
"IF YOU'RE HAPPY AND YOU KNOW IT, CLAP YOUR HANDS...."
The teacher is pleased, but then she says...
"GOOD JOB. NOW WE LEARN THE DANCE!"
And the usually confident Clark the Shark discovers that he can't sing and dance at the same time. He turns in the wrong direction and everyone else gets mixed up. Clark is killing the rehearsals and he knows it!
"WHAT IF I MESS UP?"
Their teacher tells the class just to relax and enjoy the experience. The rest of the class seems fine with that advice. But when that curtain opens on the big night....
Can Clark the Shark come through in the clinch?
You bet your dorsal fin he can! The show must go on, in this debut of Bruce Hale's Clark the Shark's (Level 1) Comic Books for beginning readers, Clark the Shark and the School Sing (I Can Read Comics Level 1). Illustrated by Hale's comic partner, Guy Francis, this new series is sure to be a hit with the early reader set. Kids can count on Clark the Shark to save the day in comic fashion. This one is a sure-fire winner for reading aloud before that curtain opens on a real-life class program.
