Fun in the sun is the order of the day for best pals Melonhead and Sam in this funny and heartwarming story about friendship, community, and the special connection between kids and those young at heart!

I’m in Paradise with my best friend, Sam. Paradise, Florida, that is—where my grandparents Nana and Jeep live. We’re staying with them while my dad works and my mom is on a trip with her lady relatives. Everything in Paradise is swank and deluxe, and lots of stuff is “For the Convenience of Our Residents.” That means free. We especially like the All-You-Can-Eat Buffet.

Since Florida is loaded with animals, we’re going to capture a pet for Sam. We considered a wild piglet or a parrot or an armadillo or an iguana, but we’ve decided to find an alligator egg because it’s easy to carry on an airplane and it can hatch once we’re home. All we have to do is come up with a way to get that egg. Luckily, Sam and I are idea men.
