In my opinion, books are the best accessory.

Jangles – a BIG fish story by David Shannon – I felt like I was sitting around a camp fire while reading this book. David Shannon had me in a trance picturing a wild huge fish that had the talent of evading all people trying to fish throughout the years… until one person has some luck, amazing luck and a wondrous experience….
I loved seeing how David Shannon creates these beautiful watery illustrations, an unforgettable fish, and a beautiful tall tale. Really have missed books by him for a while.
Youtube Book Trailer: “Bestselling storyteller David Shannon talks about his new book Jangles, a wild and witty story about the biggest fish anyone has ever seen.” — just loved hearing David talk about his book!
Goodreads Summary: “Breathtaking oil paintings bursting with energy pull readers along into Big Lake, the home of Jangles, the biggest fish anyone has seen. Fishing alone at dusk, a boy feels a tug on his line and comes face-to-face with the gigantic trout–whose enormous jaw is covered with so many lures and fish hooks that he jingles and jangles when he swims. Terrified by the sight, the boy is shocked when Jangles befriends him and takes him on an adventure to the bottom of the lake. A surprise ending will leave readers laughing and shaking their heads. Here is Shannon at his very best-in a wild and witty story that begs repeated reading.”
