Fishing in the AirBook - 2000
In the first picture book by the Newbery Medal-winning author of Walk Two Moons, a young boy and his father go on a fishing trip and discover the power of imagination. BOMC. 40,000 first printing.
We were going on a
journey, to a secret place.
We'd catch the air!
We'd catch the breeze!
A father and son set out early one morning in search of a cool, clear river in which to fish. With their lines and bobbers, they cast high into the air catching memories, discoveries, and
a bubble of breeze
and a sliver of sky
and a slice of yellow sun.
The first picture book by Sharon Creech, Newbery award-winning author of Walk Two Moons, is a lyrical portrait of the bond between a father and son. Caldecott Honor recipient Chris Raschka's illustrations shimmer in pools of color and light, making Fishing in the Air a beautiful reminder of the gift of imagination a parent passes on to a child -- and a child gladly shares in return.
