THE LITTLE FISH THAT GOT AWAY

A little boy goes fishing every day, but he never catches anything–no, not a single fish. So he waits and waits and waits, until one special day when a fish comes swimming by....

Illustrated by the incomparable Crockett Johnson, this simple, engaging story about a little boy and a clever fish was a hit with young readers–and young fishermen–when it was first published in 1957. This enticing new edition is certain to hook new fans!

Book Description HarperCollins. 1 Cloth(s), 2005. hard. Book Condition: New. The typical fish story is about the big one that got away, but this fishy tale goes in another direction. A little boy goes fishing every day, but he never catches anything—no, not a single fish. So he waits and waits and waits, until one special day when a little fish comes swimming by. Originally published in 1957, Bernadine Cook's rhythmic, delightfully readable text for youngsters up to 7 is illustrated by Crockett Johnson with the same simple, winsome charm of his earlier masterpiece Harold and the Purple Crayon. Somehow, Johnson manages to make a persistent boy and a canny little fish seem like two players in a timeless contest. 64. Bookseller Inventory # 63418
