The Great Googly Moogly by Courtney Dicmas is a fabulously fishy tale.
We follow Stella on her mission to catch the giant and terrifying fish of legend. She arms herself with various bait and fishing gear in order to catch the scaly beast. She would catch pretty much everything, other than the prized Googly Moogly.
But what happens when Stella does eventually set her eyes on the this legend of the sea. Is it really the terribly scary creature she’d heard about? Where are it’s yellow eyes and gnashing jaws?
This tenacious, spirited character is determined to achieve her goal, but it also reflects on our responsibilities to other creatures and our place in the natural world.
