  • Jangles, a Big Fish Story

    by David Shannon Year Published: 2014

    Breathtaking oil paintings bursting with energy pull readers along into Big Lake, the home of Jangles, the
    biggest fish anyone has seen. Fishing alone at dusk, a boy feels a tug on his line and comes face-to-face
    with the gigantic trout--whose enormous jaw is covered with so many lures and fish hooks that he jingles and
    jangles when he swims. Terrified by the sight, the boy is shocked when Jangles befriends him and takes him on an
    adventure to the bottom of the lake.
