Overview

Dave Paddon and Lily Snowden-Fine team up in this hilarious tall tale about a brother and sister who set out to find some fish for their father's supper. The fish aren't biting, so Kimmy and Mike head off to see if they'll have luck on the other side of the ocean. En route they encounter hurricanes, a giant squid, pirates, a merman, an iceberg and much more. Theirs is a round-the-world adventure with plenty of fun. But it's still up to their mother to find something for the pot.

Paddon's playful rhymes resonate with Newfoundland dialect; Snowden-Fine's illustrations are a marvelous match.

Several have been published in print and audio format. Dave lives in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador.
