Description

Simple and evocative language and charming illustrations describe a boy’s trip in the woods.

In this gently rhyming board book, a young boy catches a fish, cooks it over a roaring fire, and camps with his father, who plays the banjo as his son falls asleep.

Elizabeth Spurr and Manelle Oliphant together create a perfect sit-in-your-lap reading experience for toddlers.
