Product description

"A picture book that passes the fun test with flying fizz." -- BOOKLIST 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! Phyllis Root's wonderfully inventive wordplay and Jill Barton's spirited, expressive illustrations make this a read-aloud road trip to remember.
