Magic Tree House
Junie B. Jones
Calvin and his mom's boyfriend, Ledward, are good friends. When Ledward wins plane tickets, he invites Calvin to fly to Hawaii, the Big Island, for a day, and go deep-sea fishing. Wow! Calvin's never been on a plane, or any boat but his skiff. What a day—Calvin catches his first big fish, an ono. But that's nothing compared to what happens when Ledward hooks a huge and very angry marlin that charges the boat!
Fishing with Ledward opens Calvin's eyes to adventure and to important ideas about respecting nature.
