From the moment they first pack the car with their fishing poles, a sack of sandwiches, and a can of crawly worms, a father and son set off on a journey of boundless imagination. Inspired by his father’s creative view of things (trees that look like soldiers, clouds that look like angels, etc.) and by his father’s childhood memories, the boy soon begins to see the whole world in front of him, dangling from his fishing line. Chagall-like illustrations form decorative frames around a lyrical text about a shared journey between father and son. (Ages 4-8)
