If you're lucky enough to have a grandpa who has set you on his knee and told you stories about the singing fish that swallowed his Volkswagen when he was just a kid, then Jangles will become one of your favorite stories. It's magical hyperbole (that's a whoppin' big word for an big fat lie) for the biggest fish story that you've ever heard! But if your grandpa tells it, you know it's true.
Jangles: A BIG Fish Story has all the elements of a funny tall tale: imaginative, funny to the extent of being silly, contains similes, and a plethera of descriptive language. It is told as "truth" by a storyteller, but listeners know that the story could never really happen. As in many tall tales, the character and setting are familiar to the readers ... Jangles is the legendary fish that got away!
Go outside under your favorite shade tree near the lake, and have some fun hamming it up and reading Jangles: A BIG Fish Story and watching for the clever twist at the end!
