Book Description
It was a normal summer for one small fishing village in Newfoundland . . . until the dogfish arrived! Tom Dawe has taken a unique piece of history and crafted it into an entertaining tall tale. His whimsical text is perfectly complemented by C. Anne MacLeod`s distinctive folk art. This charming book is fun to read . . . and even more fun to read out loud!
