The author's style of writing is ideal for 8-12 year olds. They are soon captured by the story and they become part of the adventures of the characters depicted in the book. The illustrations are alive, and the reader has a clear picture of each and every character throughout.

 

Fishing for Trouble is "both refreshing and surprisingly on target. . . . This youthful tale is not so much about fishing as it is about the discovery of values. It teaches without preaching. . . . Here is a marvelously acute sense of what it is like to be on the cusp of adolesence: still innocent but now aware that deeper truths, like lkarger fish, swim beneath the surface and wait to be caught and revealed."
