KIRKUS REVIEW

The givens are just a bit quaint: ""There once was a father, a grandfather, and a girl named Tammy."" What ensues, when the three go fishing, hovers on the edge of humorousness: ""Father caught one more fish. Grandfather caught two more fish. Tammy caught three more crawdads."" But what all this is heading toward is just a feeble, hoary gag: Tammy pulls up a ""GIGANTIC fish""--anthropomorphized with a doleful expression--and then remembers, ""I don't like to eat fish."" Probably most kids wouldn't be bored--pictures and all, it's kind of jaunty, if trite. But most will certainly feel let down.
