Itís hot. Hot, hot, hot! So Junie and Jake and Poppa and the baby want to go to the lake. But can they make it there in their rattletrap car? It doesnít go fast, and it doesnít go far ó but with the help of some razzleberry dazzleberry snazzleberry fizz, a beach ball, a surfboard, and a three-speed, wind-up, paddle-wheel boat, theyíre off to the lake where itís cool, cool, cool! Phyllis Rootís wonderfully inventive wordplay and Jill Bartonís spirited, expressive illustrations make this a read-aloud road trip to remember.
"A picture book that passes the fun test with flying fizz." ó Booklist
