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. A surprise ending
will leave readers laughing and shaking their heads. Here
is Shannon at his very best-in a wild and witty story that
begs repeated reading.

A fun read for the whole family!

I am a huge David Shannon fan, so when I saw this book I about freaked out! We love his 'No David' book (we read it just about everyday), so I was hoping this would be a book we could throw into our usual mix. I was not surprised when after reading it, my boys and I wanted to read it again, immediately. In true David Shannon fashion, this book delivers not only a story with a relate-able main character, but also a fun story to share again and again.

The illustrations are fun, and honestly maybe a tad scary for young readers. Those of you who have read David Shannon's previous works will find the illustrations familiar.

I really enjoyed the 'tall tale' aspect of this story and look forward to reading it over and over again with my children.
