the brothers plad

Do you want that boy to read?

Once there were two brothers. They loved life and they loved adventures. They needed rugged shirts for their adventures. They chose flannel plad.


So begins The Brothers Plad and The Mystery Trout….a story about stories. It tells the quest of Tommy and Paulie, two Vermont brothers, who take up the family tradition of catching stories. Their quest for a story takes them into the Green Mountains, in search of their great grandfather’s legendary fishing hole, Angel Falls. It is a tale of daring, danger, and determination.


Not for wizards or wimps.
