What is included with this book?


The ninth book in this beloved series Gus goes fishing for the first time. Mommy can't help him because she doesn't fish, and Daddy is completely absorbed in his fancy new fishing gear. Fortunately, Grandpa is there. Grandpa shows Gus how to cast, but Gus gets all tangled up in the line. When he masters casting and lands the lure in the water, nothing bites. Finally he feels something it gets away. "I want to catch a fish," Gus tells Grandpa. "Keep trying," says Grandpa. "We know they're out there." As always, Grandpa gently points Gus in the right direction and Gus finds the way in yet another story, illustrated with watercolor paintings that "reflect the sunny warmth of loving connections passed across generations" (Booklist)

Table of Contents

"The short chapters move the story of a summer outing along with a refreshingly complex vocabulary that challenges but never overwhelms new readers. Stock's colorful and energetic watercolors expertly complement the text." --School Library Journal

"Mills has the family dynamic down pat...Stocks's line-and-watercolor scenes, in woodsy greens and river blues, capture the warmth of a close-knit family." -Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
