"Jangles a BIG fish story" by author/illustrator David Shannon

ISBN: 978-0-545-14312-7
Published by The Blue Sky Press an imprint of Scholastic
 Review:  Jangles a BIG fish story by Davis Shannon is a delightful tale of the fish that got away.  The story is smooth to read and would make a great read-a-loud story for children to anticipate what will happen at the end.   I enjoyed the illustrations that make you feel like you are part of the story.   Every town has a story that has been passed down for generations and this book is a wonderful depiction of a father passing down a tale to his children. (rev. C.Delorge)

The illustrations in Jangles a BIG fish story seem to literally jump off the page at you.  You are amazingly brought into the story by the bold, active, strong art.  
About the author/illustrator:  David Shannon has been telling tales all his life. When he was a little boy, he created a book that later inspired his international bestseller No, David!, a 1998 Caldecott Honor Book, as well as David Gets in Trouble; David Goes to School.; and It's Christmas, David!  Shannon  is the author and illustrator of numerous popular picture books, including Too Many Toys; Good Boy, Fergus; Alice the Fairy; and A Bad Case of Stripes.
