How to Catch a Fish

HOW TO CATCH A FISH; John Frank; illustrated by Peter Sylvada; Picture Book; New Milford, CT: Roaring Book Press, 2007; unpaged.

Beautifully written and beautifully illustrated, John Frank and Peter Sylvada's How to Catch a Fish takes its readers from New Caledonia to Ishi Pishi falls to tell, in lyrical verse, and show, in ravishing watercolors, how to catch a fish. Showing as well the bond between man and nature, father and child, this book is a small treasure, especially for the fisher folk.
