Description


One beautiful autumn day, Art sets out with his mother and grandfather for a fishing trip. Fishing days are Art's favorite. He loves learning the ropes from Grandpa--the different kinds of flies and tackle and the trout that frequent their favorite river. Art especially appreciates Grandpa's stories. But, this time, hearing the story about Mom's big catch on her first cast ever makes Art feel insecure about his own fishing skills. But, as Art hooks a beautiful brown trout, he finds reassurance in Grandpa's stories and marvels in the sport and a day spent with family, promising to continue the tradition with his own grandkids generations later.

Illustrated with lush imagery by rising star April Chu, Down by the River celebrates fishing, family, and fun.
