Amir lives by a lake and his dream is to catch a fish-but he can't do it on his own! Join Amir in this adventure as he meets some friends who can help him along the way.
Sheila Jones's inspiration for this book was sparked by a fishing adventure she shared with her friend Amir on Lake Brandt in North Carolina. It was a day of firsts-his first visit to the lake his first fishing pole and his first cast as a fisherman. It was a wonderful memory for both and Sheila was honored to experience it through Amir's eyes.
