This is the newest book from acclaimed author Sharon Creech.

Sharon Creech is the author of the Newbery Medal winner Walk Two Moons and the Newbery Honor Book The Wanderer. She lives in western New York State.  It was in college, when Sharon took literature and writing courses, that she became intrigued by story-telling. Later, while she was teaching  great literature in England and in Switzerland,  Sharon learned a lot about what makes a story interesting and about techniques of plot and characterization and point of view. When she started out writing novels Sharon wrote two books for adults;  but the next book was Absolutely Normal Chaos, for elementary school children, and ever since that book she has written mainly about young people.

It’s 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 doesn’t go fast, and it doesn’t go far — but with the help of some razzleberry dazzleberry snazzleberry fizz, a beach ball, a surfboard, and a three-speed, wind-up, paddle-wheel boat, they’re off to the lake where it’s cool, cool, cool!
