“Everybody needs a good fish tale. Jangles is a fish of epic proportions and, of course, he has eluded fishermen for years. Jangles makes the decisions, and he decides to show a young human his world at the bottom of the lake. Spectacular art makes this fish tale jump off the page. Shannon is at his best here, in a style very different from anything he's done so far.”
— Elizabeth Anker, Alamosa Books, Albuquerque, NM


Breathtaking oil paintings bursting with energy pull

readers along into Big Lake, the home of Jangles, the

biggest fish anyone has seen. Fishing alone at dusk,

a boy feels a tug on his line and comes face-to-face

with the gigantic trout--whose enormous jaw is covered

with so many lures and fish hooks that he jingles and

jangles when he swims. Terrified by the sight, the boy is

shocked when Jangles befriends him and takes him on an

adventure to the bottom of the lake. A surprise ending

will leave readers laughing and shaking their heads. Here

is Shannon at his very best-in a wild and witty story that

begs repeated reading.
