About this title


A family that can only afford potatoes finds their appetite waning, until the mother makes a treat, potato pudding. By the author of Mindy.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-A first-person, present-tense account of a child's first fishing trip with her grandfather. Jess is worried that she will do something wrong- scare the fish or catch a log, as her big brother has predicted. But Grandpa is patient and wise, and he shows her just what to do. In the end he declares "'Now it's your fishing pole, too.'" The full-page oil paintings in tones of green, blue, and orange beautifully capture the landscape of river and woods. The details of the fishing expedition and of Jess's fears add depth to the story, but the length of the text and lack of strong tension make it more effective for lap reading than for group sharing. In a nice twist, readers may assume that Jess is a boy until the penultimate illustration shows her long hair tumbled out of her cap. There are numerous picture books about fishing trips: Nina Kidd's June Mountain Secret (HarperCollins, 1991) is a faster-moving story of a girl and her father, with more information about the environment, while William T. and Lindsay B. George's Fishing at Long Pond (Greenwillow, 1991) features a girl and her grandfather in a shorter story. Sally Ward's Punky Goes Fishing (Dutton, 1991) has more humor. For a slightly older audience, this is a satisfying addition.
