Sara realizes that Granddad's fishing buddy is the heron; he stirs up the fish as he wades through the shallows. Jorisch's delicate pencil drawings, washed with watercolors and gouache, create likeable characters in evocative settings.

Sara realizes that Granddad's fishing buddy is the heron; he stirs up the fish as he wades through the shallows. By the book's end, Granddad has a new fishing buddy: Sara, of course. Done in pencil, watercolor, and gouache, the illustrations are perfect for the tone of the story. Even as it celebrates the comfortable companionship of Sara and her grandfather, this pleasant picture book also depicts the appeal of fishing, a pastime that often seems static as represented in picture books.

Granddad’s Fishing Buddy. This picture book celebrates the comfortable companionship of a girl and her grandfather, while also depicting the appeal of fishing. Written by Mary Quigley and illustrated by Stephane Jorisch Dotted with childlike details, such as baiting a hook with a length of red licorice rather than a worm, the story unfolds in a quiet but absorbing way. Beaver Pond Moose Pond. Written and illustrated by Jim Arnosky A pond is the watery home of a beaver, whose industriousness has made way for other animals.

It is summer on the lake, and Sara wants to fish with her granddad and his special fishing buddy. She promises that she will keep real quiet so she won’t scare the fish, that she can row a boat without making it turn in circles, and that she can bait a hook . . . maybe. Granddad is convinced and they take a boat out on the water together. There, Sara meets the best fisherman on the lake, learns all of her granddad’s fishing secrets, and creates some of her very own.

Lyrical with touches of spot-on humor, this story captures the fun and loving relationship between a granddaughter and her grandfather, and their interaction with the natural world. Glowingly radiant artwork brings their relationship to life as Sara learns that sometimes the best fishing buddy is not always who you expect!


We love this book. We have a Granddad and Grandmama for grandparents in our family and Grandad loves to fish so it's even extra special. Bought one for ourselves and now one for a gift!
It's kind of cute. Basically, a girl is staying over at her granddad and grandmama's house, and she stays up late overnight to try to make sure she hears her granddad get up in the morning, and he gets up really early in the morning. She goes out and sees him. He's going to go fishing. She wants to go, too, and he considers it for a moment and then says, "Okay." So they go out. He says he's going to meet his "fishing buddy." She says, "You left without him!" But he says, "He'll meet us out there." They see other people in boats on the lake, but none of them is the fishing buddy. She's not sure if she can put a worm onto a hook, because it's kinda gross, but she happens to have some licorice in her pocket, so she baits her hooks with licorice. Then a heron shows up, and they follow the heron because he knows where the fish is. They row around and catch fish, and then go back home, and that's pretty much it.

The granddad is a man of few words. They have a really nice time out on the lake together. It's just about a girl spending time with her granddad. It's kind of cool how it's a girl going fishing, where stereotypically it would be a boy. Maybe younger boys would also be grossed out by putting a worm on a hook. But she's inventive about it, and has a great time with her granddad.

Message: It's fun to spend time with your granddad.

Sara is staying with her granddad and grandmama at their cottage on the lake. Determined not to miss out on anything she hears Granddad get up before the sun. What is he doing? Going fishing? Can Sara go also? Only if she knows how to be quiet, row a boar and put a worm on a hook. Off they go with Sara being one very excited little girl.

Now, Granddad had mentioned something about meeting up with his fishing buddy. Who is it? Is it one of the men in another boat? I think you will be surprised! Not wanting to use a worm, Sara uses licorice to bait her line. Will it work? Who catches the first fish?

What a delightful story!
Fishing stories for little ones are not very common, and "Granddad's Fishing Buddy" nicely addresses this deficiency. It is a simple yet heartwarming story about a little girl who goes on a fishing trip with her grandpa, and is eager to know the identity of Grandpa's yet-to-be seen fishing buddy. When the reader eventually guesses at the identity of the fishing buddy, it is a rather cute revelation. The heartwarming story is enhanced by the beautiful illustrations by Stephane Jorisch. Obviously, this is a great read for grandfather and child, but it is also a perfect read-aloud for preschoolers and up.
Maybe because I had a grandfather that was my buddy, or maybe because the story is cheery and well written--my 5-year-old girl and I loved reading this book together. And now she wants to try fishing with her grandpa. But she says she'll steer clear of the worms too.
As a sportsman, I have had a hard time finding books about hunting and fishing for my three-year-old daughter. No luck on a hunting book so far, but this is a great little story about a girl fishing with her granddad. The length of the story is just right, and the artwork is good.
