Author Leann Bell paints bright smiles on young readers’ faces as she brings forth a vibrantly illustrated book, Ed and Alma Go Fishing. Made available through Xlibris, this delightful children’s book follows Ed and Alma on an unforgettable fishing trip.

Ed and Alma owned a small store at the Bell Fish Camp, Indianola, Texas. It was a warm, early fall day, and business was slow. Ed decided to head up the lake to try to catch some Red fish for supper. Having no customers to entertain, Alma decided to accompany Ed. On Powderhorn Lake, they positioned their boat and dropped the anchor. Ed went out of the boat, bringing his fishing gear with him. Left on the boat, Alma put the bait in her line and tossed it into the water. After several minutes, her line stopped. The thing tugging on to it was heavy. Was it an oyster shell or something really big? Ed and Alma Go Fishing tells all.

A tale full of surprises from page to page, Ed and Alma Go Fishing can be the perfect instrument for parent-children bonding. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to

This book will be featured at the 2011 Texas Library Association Book Exhibit in Austin, TX on April 12-15, 2011.
