“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

Bestselling storyteller and Caldecott Honor artist Shannon instantly hooks readers with this stunning, highly entertaining tour-de-force. Breathtaking oil paintings bursting with energy pull readers along into Big Lake, the home of Jangles, the biggest fish anyone has seen.
