This amusing book tells how Chico and his father go fishing. In parallel to the pictures showing Chico’s fishing successes, we also see his father (who didn’t want Chico to come on the grounds that he would disturb the fish) having no luck. Chico of course catches a huge fish. Korky Paul is perhaps best known for the ‘Winnie the Witch’ series and his illustrations here also have an entertainingly quirky cartoon quality. The pictures and the story carry the reader along and make for a pleasant shared reading experience.
