Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  Bestselling storyteller David Shannon instantly hooks readers with this stunning, highly entertaining tour-de-force! I'm not kidding--Jangles is the biggest fish anyone has ever seen or heard! That's right, his giant, crooked jaw is covered with so many fishhooks and lures that he clinks and clatters and jangles when he swims! You can bet everyone wants to catch ol' Jangles, but he's way too smart. Folks try to catch him with whole turkeys for bait, and one fella even tried a stick of dynamite! Was it Jangles who pitched those explosives right back into the fisherman's boat? Lucky that man was a fast swimmer! He claimed Jangles bumped him on the butt on his way back to shore, but nobody believed him. Readers, prepare yourselves for a wild ride when an unsuspecting boy catches Jangles--or does Jangles catch the boy? Children will laugh out loud at Shannon's infectious humor, while art enthusiasts will be mesmerized by luminous oil paintings--Shannon's first use of this medium since he was an art student. The creator of numerous award-winning picture books such as No, David! , a Caldecott Honor book, Shannon spent two full years concentrating on every detail and nuance of these paintings. The result is a masterpiece--and a celebration of the genre of classic tall tales called "fish stories," told by the fireplace year after year, from one generation to another.
