Sophie's Fish Next » 1 of 15 « Prev
"SOPHIE'S FISH," by A.E. Cannon, illustrated by Lee White, Viking, $15.99 (ages 3-5)

Jake is very worried about his promise to care for Sophie’s fish, exclaiming, “I don’t know anything about taking care of fish!” His imagination conjures up possible food (maybe strawberry worm cake) or activities to entertain (what kind of story to read to the fish).

But Jake’s imagination is not as big as the gag Utah author A.E. Cannon and Lee White play on the reader. This will certainly be a “read it again!” choice for the summer.
