Dot Goes Fishing

By Candlewick Press
Illustrated by The Jim Henson Company

It’s fishing day with Dad, and Dot has packed the coolest tech she can find to make it a huge success. But is there something she’s missing? A new adventure based on the animated TV series Dot.

Dot is all set to spend the day on the lake fishing with her dad. They’ve got fishing rods, bait, and lots of sandwiches. And since Dad always comes home from his fishing trips empty-handed, Dot has figured out the perfect high-tech way to make this the most successful trip ever: the Fisherman Joe Fish-Finder! All she has to do is put this amazing frog gadget in the water and open up the app on her tablet, and she and Dad can use sonar to detect all the fish in the lake. But Dot and Dad get a little more than they bargained for when the gadget gets eaten by a giant fish that is bent on traveling with it. Can Dad’s old-school fishing expertise help save the day?

  • Dot's first adventure in a brand new format: chapter book
  • Dot spends quality time with her Dad on the lake, and learns an important lesson about enjoying an experience rather than focusing on catching the most fish
  • The theme of this book reinforces the theme of the Dot TV series: that technology is great, but knowing when to step away from it is important, too
