Kristi wants to go fishing with her dad — and makes the most amazing catch EVER!
A simple story about a great day of fishing for a girl and her dad — with a whimsical, fantastical, outrageous Robert Munsch twist, of course!
Kristi has finally persuaded her dad to take her fishing. But the waves make the boat go up and down, and she tumbles into the water. When dad pulls her back in, he gets a BIG surprise — Kristi is holding an ENORMOUS fish!
Could this be a new way to catch fish? When her next swim leads to an even bigger surprise, Dad knows it's time to go home.
But wait until Mom finds out!
