Praise for Shark Party:
Keeping things buoyant, Chanani tucks jokes about peeing in the ocean into this sequel to Shark Princess along withmeaningful exchanges about different preferences when it comes to being alone or with others. Glides along on a warm current of affirmation that princesses, despite their differences, are united in a love of adventure."
Praise for Shark Princess:
"The story is overt in its message of self-love, and the digitally rendered artwork is clean and simple with calming washes of ocean blue and scattered bursts of fun color. A wholesome addition to the growing collection of early graphic novels for beginning readers."
“Who gets to be a princess? That’s the crux of this firmly inclusive, emotionally generous graphic novel by Chanani. Readers are immersed in an undersea cartoon world where Kitana, a whale shark sporting a seashell-and-starfish crown, is the self-declared 'first shark princess.' Mack worries that [his] dangerous teeth and severe allergies are instant disqualifiers [to be a princess], but it’s his realization that expression and identity aren’t about rules or permission that make this series starter sparkle.” —Publishers Weekly
