All Punia wants is a succulent lobster dinner for himself and his mother, and the use of the lobster cave for his fellow villagers. Three times Punia tricks the King of Sharks, the guardian of the lobster cave; three times he brings home fresh lobster. But each time Punia succeeds, the King of Sharks gets angrier. Will the shark take revenge on Punia, or will Punia's clever tricks make him the hero of his whole village. Full color.
