The Truth About My Unbelievable Summer
by Davide Calì
illustrations by Benjamin Chaud
What really happened over the summer break? A curious teacher wants to know. The epic explanation? What started out as a day at the beach turned into a globe-spanning treasure hunt with high-flying hijinks, exotic detours, an outrageous cast of characters, and one very mischievous bird! Is this yet another tall tale, or is the truth just waiting to be revealed? From the team behind I Didn't Do My Homework Because... and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to School... comes a fantastical fast-paced, detail-rich illustrated summer adventure that's so unbelievable, it just might be true!
"A fabulous escapade."
“Author Davide Calì has a fantastic imagination that will keep youngsters (and the adults reading the book) laughing all through. Clever illustrations by Benjamin Chaud are full of fun details and really help to complete the story. Readers, young and old, will find this a great, fun diversion.”
