With hopes of fish for dinner, two children set off for the stream with bobbers, buckets, rods, and nets in tow. They don't catch any fish, but when an unexpected breeze drops apples into the water, their craving for fish happily subsides in favor of apple pie. Warmly textured double-page spread illustrations accompany the playful, rhythmic text. Copyright 2008 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

PreS-Gr 2— On a summer day, a brother and sister set out to catch some fish for supper. While they are waiting for bites on their lines, a breeze blows an apple windfall into the water, and they return home with their buckets full. The family enjoys a fruit pie instead of a fish fry. Kemly's sunny illustrations capture the rural setting, and children can follow the parallel adventures of two curious raccoons. Underwater perspectives show the apples bobbing below the surface alongside frogs and trout. Told in rhyming, staccato verse ("Eyes on the water/Sun feeling hotter/Sitting fishing/Mostly wishing"), this simple story will appeal to children, including beginning readers.—Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada
