Granddad's Fishing Buddy
- 2008 Charlotte Zolotow Award Highly Commended Title
It is summer on the lake, and Sara wants to fish with her granddad and his special fishing buddy. She promises that she will keep real quiet so she won’t scare the fish, that she can row a boat without making it turn in circles, and that she can bait a hook . . . maybe. Granddad is convinced and they take a boat out on the water together. There, Sara meets the best fisherman on the lake, learns all of her granddad’s fishing secrets, and creates some of her very own.
Lyrical with touches of spot-on humor, this story captures the fun and loving relationship between a granddaughter and her grandfather, and their interaction with the natural world. Glowingly radiant artwork brings their relationship to life as Sara learns that sometimes the best fishing buddy is not always who you expect!
