The Giftby Kristine L Franklin
Synopses & Reviews
Jimmy Joe can hardly believe it. Fish Woman has invited him to go fishing. And not just regular fishing, but salmon fishing. Some say that Fish Woman might be a witch, but salmon fishing...well, that's an invitation you just can't turn down. So he puts on his hat, his sweater and his yellow slicker, and Jimmy Joe and Fish Woman head out to sea for an adventure more magical than he ever could have imagined.
Vibrant watercolors in glowing hues of blue, green, and red bring alive the beauty of the sea, the magnificence of the mighty whales that live within it, and the warmth of the characters, making this a special story about friendship and the true meaning of giving.
From the bestselling author of "Mama, Do You Love Me?" comes a special story about friendship and the true meaning of giving. Full color.
Although some in town consider the Fish Woman a witch, a young boy goes fishing with her and not only catches--and gives away--his first salmon, but also gets to see a pod of whales. Color illustrations throughout.
