From the Inside Flap
Exaggerated tales about "the gigantic fish that got away" have been making people laugh for centuries, and some of the best have been passed on from generation to generation. Now humorist and celebrated artist David Shannon adds his own splash of magic to this original story about a boy who manages to catch Jangles, the biggest and most elusive fish anyone has ever seen -- or does Jangles catch the boy?
Come along on a wild ride as one of America's finest storytellers spins a father-son yarn that is both entertaining and reflective. Each of Shannon's luminous oil paintings is a masterpiece, and the artist uses color, composition, and subtle detail to pull readers into a vivid adventure. But ultimately Jangles stretches its storytelling net much wider than A Big Fish Story-- for in Shannon's surprising ending, his young narrator discovers that doing the right thing is far more satisfying than a moment of fame and glory.
