This song was a favorite of mine back in the day, so I had to see how it held up in book form.
Akashic Books sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you). It has been published and you can get a copy now.
This was done nicely. The main character is a cat who sits and fishes from morning to night. Some time is just wasted but it's a pleasant place to do it. The illustrations are nicely done.
The best part is the end where the cat develops a friend who fishes also.
This is a great way to show your child songs from the past.
