The Old Man and the C

Overview

Overview

Meet Charlie. He's never been the luckiest fisherman on the coast, just the oldest (and to hear him tell it, the smartest). Charlie's dream is to catch the biggest fish in the sea, so when Roger down at the bait shop announces the first annual Fish-or-Cut-Bait Fishing Tournament, Charlie signs up. In his trusty rowboat, the C-Worthy, with a squishy, squirmy little worm on his hook, Charlie goes to sea and sits patiently waiting for a Big Fish. But what he catches—after the battle of his lifetime—is not only a surprise to Charlie but to everyone at Roger's Bait and Supply Shop. Unlike Hemingway's hero, Charlie turns his quest for a big fish into an amusing adventure that involves a bad case of the hiccups. Charlie turns his discouragement into triumph. This is a story of optimism, perseverance ... and fisherman's luck.

    A cute fishing story for children that adults will enjoy, too. It's about an old fisherman who sets out to win a fishing tournament hoping to catch the biggest fish in the sea. He encounters some problems along the way but ends up winning the contest in a very interesting way by catching a golden C. He ends up winning the tournament and because he did, in the future the rules for the tournament will be have to be changed The wonderful use of adjectives makes the story more interesting and easy to picture in your mind even without looking at the wonderful illustrations in the book. An enjoyable book to read with or to your children or grandchildren, especially those sho love to fish.
