Publisher: Greenwillow Books

The pond visited in two handsome earlier books (Box Turtle at Long Pond, 1989) is now the site of a perfect day's fishing for Katie and her grandfather, who admire wildflowers without picking them and observe other wildlife like a deer and an osprey before catching a single bass, just enough for dinner. A satisfying environment-conscious idyll, its pleasures enhanced in beautifully observed, exquisitely detailed paintings that draw readers into the heart of the experience. (Picture book. 4-8)
