Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

After walking across a frozen lake one morning, a boy and his grandfather make holes in the ice, drop their fishing lines into the water, and wait. After five hours, they move into a heated canvas shack and try again. They share hot cocoa with friends, but “Seven hours pass. / Not one fish.” Packing up at nine o’clock, they reel in a line and catch a fish. That would be a happy ending, but Larson trumps it with an even better one. The staccato lines of the picture book’s text tell a quiet, satisfying story, but its artwork transports readers to the unusual setting, which children might find difficult to imagine on their own. Even the snow and ice glow with subtle color variations in the pleasing digital collage artwork, which combines painted, drawn, and printed elements. In many of the illustrations, a cross section of four-inch ice divides the boy and his grandfather from the dark, mysterious water below them. An inviting introduction to a rarely written about activity. Preschool-Grade 2. --Carolyn Phelan

Please go out right now and buy this book for your child, especially if you do not live in an area where there are people who ice fish. This book will be an excellent way to share the experience with your child. If you do go ice fishing with your child, what a great way to compare how you ice fish to how they ice fish in the book. The illustrations are appropriately plaid! The rhythm of the words and the length of the text are perfect for a cozy afternoon read. You will see the cold, but feel the coziness of the ice fishing shack and the relationship between the grandfather and child.

The minute I saw the cover of this book I was hooked. Evocative of any Minnesota lake in winter, who can resist those cosy ice houses and the plaid fish swimming serenely below the ice? The rest of the book does not disappoint. Spare, lyrical words describe the close relationship of a boy and his grandfather in their quest to catch a fish on a frozen lake. And as a bonus, small children will love the opportunity to count along with the text. In the end, what's most important to the fishing duo is the friendship, not the fish. Two thumbs up to the author and illustrators for this lovely book.

If you think ice fishing is only about shivering while waiting for a bite on the end of a hook, you are certainly mistaken. Larson's engaging writing shows you the magic that happens when two people hope together. The brilliant illustrations by Johnson and Fancher are as enchanting as the shimmering Northern Lights in a night sky. (And who can resist plaid fish? Who would want to?)
