jimbigfishJim and the Big Fish – Jim likes to fish. He has a big net but can’t seem to catch anything! A mischievous seagull has stolen a fisherman’s boot, sock and hat. Jim uses his net to save them before they sink into the sea!

Will Jim catch a fish after all?

This is a super story to celebrate how one person doing a good deed can mean the world to another. Patricia Reagan’s illustrations and Clare Helen Walsh’s wonderful words take the young reader on Jim’s story as he helps the fisherman, only to be given what he wanted all along, in return.
