Building Block Award

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.
