Davide Cali's The Truth About My Unbelievable Summer...

The Truth About My Unbelievable Summer... by Davide Cali reminded me a little of the Dr. Seuss book To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street. The story is told by author/illustrator Davide Cali, and the artwork by Benjamin Chaud complements it perfectly.

The story begins with an adult asking a young boy what he did over the summer. He spins into a fantastic tale about a message in a bottle and a treasure hunt that took him all over the world. His story seems too fantastic to be true, and the reader is left wondering - what could possibly happen next?

The Truth About My Unbelievable Summer is packed with humorous situations involving everything from time travel to soaring through the sky while wearing a jet pack. The vocabulary isn't too hard for beginning readers, and the story is engaging and will get both parent and child talking about what could really have happened.
