9780152060206: A Couple of Boys Have the Best Week Ever

When James and Eamon go to a week of Nature Camp and stay at Eamon's grandparents' house, it turns out that their free time spent staying inside, eating waffles, and playing video games is way more interesting than nature. But sometimes things work out best when they don't go exactly as planned.  

This Caldecott Honor-winning book is a moving and hilarious celebration of young boys, childhood friendships, and the power of the imagination, where Marla Frazee captures the very essence of summer vacation and what it means to be a kid.

About the Author:

MARLA FRAZEE has illustrated many picture books, including Everywhere Babies by Susan Meyers and Harriet, You'll Drive Me Wild! by Mem Fox, as well as her own Walk On! and Santa Claus the World's Number One Toy Expert. She lives in Pasadena, California.  

From AudioFile:

James and Eamon are visiting Eamon's grandparents at the beach. Jasper Newell and Teddy Walsh's youthful voices capture the everyday lives of the two boys, complete with straightforward opinions ("Food is way better here.") and childlike giggles as they jump on the bed in the downstairs bedroom. Fred Berman pauses regularly to let the jaunty music and sound effects play their part. The story is framed by camera clicks and laughter as "Jamon" (Grandpa Bill's time-saving nickname for the two boys) takes photographs for the book's endpapers. Young listeners will want to pore the over the Caldecott-winning illustrations as they enjoy this story's understated humor. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
