Let me start by saying I am 41 years of age and my mom purchased this under my kindle account for my daughter who is 12. My daughter has spent the last two years fishing with my parents in Canada just as I did when I was a kid. After my mom read the story she said I must read it also.
After reading a few pages I was drawn in to the story and the characters like a musky drawn to a shiny lure moving through the water. I found myself remembering my first trip to Canada and fishing for Northern and our trip back to Illinios stopping at the World Fishing Hall of Fame in Hayword Wisconsin, which at the time was just starting to be built not far from where the story takes place.
The more I read the more I found myself looking to see if the places in the book were actual places in Wisconsin, hoping that if they were I could make a trip there myself and fish for the elusive musky.

I gave my 10-year-old nephew "Muskie Attack" as a birthday present, and he enjoyed the book so much that he went on to use it for a school project that involved a book review and a crafts presentation. It's so hard to find good chapter books for boys. This one proved to be both fun and functional!
MUSKIE ATTACK, the outdoor adventure of three adolescents named Griffy, Pike and Gil is both heartwarming and entertaining. Griffy, a city kid, is told he will be spending the summer months in WS at Whispering Pines Lodge on Lost Land Lake with his Uncle Dell. Griffy, who typically entertains himself in his room with a vast array of electronics, is dreading the summer knowing he will be out of his element. In all his worrying, Griffy never imagines he will be part of a fishing adventure of a lifetime with his new found friends Pike and Gil.
The huge 5 foot muskie discovered in Lost Land Lake spurs a fishing contest with a reward of $5000.00. With competitors arriving from near and far, the trio is not to be outdone. Determined to win the prize and land the large fish, Griffy, Pike and Gil embark on a breathtaking adventure that even the fans of "Jaws" would be proud.
