A NoveleBook - 2013
Nine-year-old Sam loves fishing with his dad. So when his pesky little sister, Lucy, horns in on their fishing trip, he's none too pleased: "Where's my stringer? / Something's wrong! / The princess doll does not belong!" All ends well in this winsome book of poems -- each labeled with its proper poetic form, from quatrain to tercet. Together the poems build a dawn-to-dusk story of a father-son bond, of sibling harmony lost and found -- and most of all, of delicious anticipation. Charming line drawings animate the poetry with humor and drama, and the extensive Poet's Tackle Box at the end makes this the perfect primer to hook aspiring poets of all ages.

A rollicking read, told in verse by each of the three in the family who are fishing- Dad, Sam, and Lucy. The beautiful movement of Sam's attitude is the jewel in the crown of this gentle, sweet story.

Send me a fish that is lively and long.
One that is sturdy, stupendous, and strong.
Maybe a walleye, a catfish or two -
Even a perch or a bluegill will do.
Now is the moment. I'm up to the task.
Any fish, many fish, that's all I ask.
