About the book

Wendy Wildgoose flies over for a visit with her friend Davey, an adorable little rabbit, and tells him all about her fabulous summer vacation at the beach.   Inspired by her story Davy immediately wants to go there too.  Unfortunately he and his family cannot fly like geese, and their wagon is too weak to carry all their luggage....but wait!!!! They all have strong legs and that just might be their mode of transportation. 

After trying to figure out ways to make the highly anticipated vacation work his family finally comes to the conclusion that a beach holiday is definitely out.  They have run into too many obstacles and they put that dream to rest. 

They are all disappointed and very sad because they are all pumped to go... but wait!!! Davy has a fantastic idea that will turn their frowns into wide, happy smiles.  He encourages them to come along and join him on a wonderful trip that simulates beach fun and   will make wonderful memories for the family.   Will they trust him enough to blindly follow him on this quest and finally get the long-awaited vacation they deserve?  

This book is about close family ties, problem solving, not giving in to defeat or giving up on your dreams.   The illustrations are detailed, full of action and expression making the story animated to the reader.  I highly recommend this book.
