Praise For Skyfishing: (A Grand Tale with Grandpa)

"A sweet tale of how the power of play helps an elder adjust to a new life."

— Kirkus

"A magical picture book that sweetly portrays intergenerational love and imagination."

— School Library Journal

"Bernatene’s rich, energetic scenes are full of comical details to discover, and the vibrant
brushstroke spreads and old-fashioned fishing advertisements on the inner title pages add to the story’s whimsy."

— Booklist
