We were going on a journey, to a secret place. We'd catch the air! We'd catch the breeze!

A father and son set out early one morning in search of a cool, clear river in which to fish. With their lines and bobbers, they cast high into the air catching memories, discoveries, and

a bubble of breeze and a sliver of sky and a slice of yellow sun.

The first picture book by Sharon Creech, Newbery award-winning author of Walk Two Moons, is a lyrical portrait of the bond between a father and son. Caldecott Honor recipient Chris Raschka's illustrations shimmer in pools of color and light, making Fishing in the Air a beautiful reminder of the gift of imagination a parent passes on to a child -- and a child gladly shares in return.
