Piggy is excited; he's going fishing with Dad for the first time. They prepare sandwiches, hunt for worms, sit and wait (or squirm impatiently), even catnap!
Dad soon sees this will not be just another fishing trip, because, well, little boys have fresh ways of looking at things. Will they end their day with the delicious fried fresh fish Dad is dreaming of?
Perhaps not, but lucky are those with dads like Piggy's, who take their cues from their young ones, and go with the flow. They and their children invent their own ways of doing things together.
The gentle watercolor and pencil illustrations are good-natured depictions of father and son. Daddy Pig looks relaxed in Hawaiian shirt, floppy hat and glasses. Piggy never removes his bright yellow boots. The illustrator has winsomely captured young boys' body movements and facial expressions.
