Summary: It is well known that if you want to catch a fish, certain gear comes in handy. You’ll need a rod and tackle, and also, some bait. Perhaps a squirmy worm? Far less commonly known is that after you cast, you can’t just wait and watch your “bobber bob.” You can’t sit back and make a wish. No, you have to shout out, “Come on, fish!” It is this old-timey lore that lures the catch (or at least a whopper of a fish story) for two siblings spending a day on the lake with their Unkie.
Whimsical and nostalgic illustrations in a limited pallet of blues and greens will mesmerize young readers and transport their adults right back to the day they learned how to cast, deploy the family’s good luck superstition, catch, and of course, tell the most fantastic of fish stories.
