    How much fun can you have with just one rubber boot? When one goes missing, Jack and his grandmother are forced to cancel their fishing trip. However, Jack has never been one to let a setback get in the way of a good time. And once Jack gets his hands on a tall piece of driftwood and a few of Newfoundland and Labrador's most celebrated musicians, it turns out that everyone gets to have a lot of fun!

A heartwarming tale, Jack and the Magnificent Ugly Stick will be enjoyed by anyone who ever held an instrument in their hands or a song in their heart!
