Rocket Ride by Graham Salisbury

Calvin Coconut is a good kid.  He enjoys his family and friends and is happy at heart.  He gets really excited when he finds out his Dad is coming to the islands for a concert.  He hasn't seen him since the divorce...

Wendy Lamb Books sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It's been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.  Look at the others in this series, too.  They are interesting, set in Hawaii, and middle graders will love reading about Calvin's antics.

Calvin's thrilled he'll be able to see his Dad.  He doesn't remember much about him and he's nervous about what his Dad will think of him.  Even more stressful, his Dad gave them 10 tickets to the concert.  Who shall they invite?

Calvin always learns something in these stories and this time is no different.  He develops a conflict over what to do about the last free ticket and has to find a unique solution.

Why not go play on the beach with Calvin and travel with him when he meets his Dad.  You'll enjoy his story, Calvin is a character!

Happy reading.
