Wed catch the breeze!A father and son set out early one morning in search of a cool, clear river in which to fish. With their lines and bobbers, they cast high into the air catching memories, discoveries, anda bubble of breeze and a sliver of sky and a slice of yellow sun.The first picture book by Sharon Creech, Newbery award-winning author of Walk Two Moons, is a lyrical portrait of the bond between a father and son. Caldecott Honor recipient Chris Raschkas illustrations shimmer in pools of color and light, making Fishing in the Air a beautiful reminder of the gift of imagination a parent passes on to a child -- and a child gladly shares in return.AWARDS: Best Childrens Books 2000 (PW) and Lasting Connections 2001 (Book Links)
