Roger and his neighbor Emily are heading to the lake to do some fishing. But the city sidewalks are crowded—so crowded that Emily accidentally catches a few things that are decidedly not fish. A small mob starts to chase after her and Roger, but soon everyone discovers that a trip to the lake is just what they needed to cool off.

This zany read-aloud from the author of Roger Is Reading a Book shows readers that sometimes a series of mishaps can turn strangers into friends.
Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW
“There’s a constant sense of movement in Van Biesen’s elegant mixed-media illustrations, which balance a chic urban environment with loads of physical comedy. The repetition and sound effects built into the storytelling add to the fun (“Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop! Bumble-de-bump! Bumble-de-bump!”) as Van Biesen shows how serendipity and misadventure can result in an unforgettable day.”
“An amusing story; with its repetitive text sure to appeal to kids, and its double-page spreads filled with lively mixed-media pictures that grow increasingly crowded, readers will fall for it—hook, line, and sinker.”
