The Fishermen, the Horse, and the Sea
Written by Barbara Joosse, illustrated by Renée Graef
Young Lester Smith is part of a fishing family on Lake Michigan. He loves playing on the beach with his little sister, helping Mama with chores, and watching the neighbor’s big horse pull Papa’s fishing boat onto shore. On the autumnal equinox of 1895, a wicked storm rolls into Port Washington, damaging a schooner on the lake and putting the lives of its two crewmen in danger. Will Lester, his family, and the horse save the day?

Barbara Joosse is an award-winning author of more than fifty books for children, including Mama, Do You Love Me?, Lovabye Dragon, Hooray Parade, Nobody’s Cat, and the Lulu and Rocky series. She lives in Port Washington, Wisconsin. Visit her at www.barbarajoosse.com
