"Young man," laughed the farmer, "you're sort of a fool! You'll never catch fish in McElligot's Pool!" (from the first line)
Illus. in color. Who knows what fantastic fish might swim in McElligot's Pool!
From the Publisher:
Who knows what fantastic fish might fish in McElligot's Pool! "Rare and wonderful imaginings are told in the author-artist's inimitable rhyme and are shown in hilariously funny pictures".--Booklist. ALA Notable Book; Caldecott Honor Book. Full-color illustrations.While Marco waits for fish to bite, his imagination conjures up dozens of delightful or weird sea creatures he might catch
A young boy imagines all the fantastic and amazing fish he might catch if he just patiently bides his time while fishing at McElligot's Pool. Despite a passerby's claim that no fish can be caught in McElligot's Pool, the boy thinks he just might be able to hook (among others) a fish with a checkerboard belly, an eel with two heads, a dogfish, and a fish that is part cow. Color and b&w illustrations accompany the rhyming text.
