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.
