Gone Fishing: A Novel in Verse
by Tamera Will Wissinger, illustrated by Matthew Cordell
Houghton Mifflin/HMH

Will Sam’s day on the lake with his dad be ruined when his sister tags along? Playful, verse text and pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations. Detailed guide to poetic forms. (8-10)

Our Young Reviewer says:

I would rate this book excellent as an introduction to poetry. It is different because it tells a full story in poems. I could see teachers using this book to get younger readers into poetry by reading this book to them. The kids will relate to the story of a brother not really wanting to hang out with his little sister. The fishing part is funny too.
