The Lure of the Big Catch

By David Shannon

Scholastic, $17.99, 32 pages

Know someone who caught that legendary giant fish? Didn’t think so. But in Jangles, A Big Fish Story, readers will recount the lure of the big catch. The illustrations are both bold and exciting. Author David Shannon vividly sets the scene with language. “Big Lake gets smooth as glass and a thin mist whispers across it.” A surprising twist turns the familiar fishing tale on end, offering a climax with a nice lesson.
