From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 1–Stanley returns in another simple but surreal picture book. Here, the man puts his boat on his old pickup truck and heads off to a stream to do a bit of fishing. After waiting patiently, he finally feels what he assumes is a big fish on the line, but it turns out to be a sorry-looking boot. Inspired by another of his famous ideas, he casts his line into the sky rather than the water and immediately begins to haul in a boatload of golden fish. He then pours them from his buckets into the stream and heads for home, having had a most satisfactory day. Though the story is intriguing, it is the artwork that captures the eye and sparks the imagination. The crisp, clean illustrations in bright golds, verdant greens, and brilliant blues are a pleasure to behold. Created by hand and digitally colored, the pictures have a calm, uncluttered feel with their black silhouettes in the background and a wide variety of perspectives. Stanley and the fish are happy, and readers will be gratified.–Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI

"Frazier, a noted graphic designer, imaginatively challenges kids to think outside the stream in this fish tale with a clever hook. A visual conundrum that accentuates the "art" of looking at the world in different ways." -Kirkus Reviews

Whether you're 3 or 4--or 34--Stanley will grow with you. When you read this book again in 20 years it may show you something entirely different. Stanley books should be a staple on every bookshelf: they are both timely and timeless. As much as my 4-year-old nephew loved this book, I think it grows even better with age. Craig Frazier never fails to delight!
