This warm, nostalgic tale and the author’s brilliantly colored paintings evoke a real sense of time and place and family fun that children and parents alike will find irresistible.

May and her parents and her older brother Richie are off to Florida – May’s first vacation far from home. After a long hot drive, full of fights with Richie, they reach their destination. Ahead lie sunny days filled with new adventures and unexpected pleasures that will bring May and Richie closer together. And when they get home, her Florida vacation is a happy memory for May all winter long.
