"There's nobody to pay with," I complained. "She doesn't even have a TV." (from the first line)
At first, Nicky is upset about being sent to his grandmothers home in Wisconsin for the summer, yet when he comes upon a raft, his feelings begin to change as he starts exploring the many wonders of the world around him found in the wood and on the river. *Author: Lamarche, Jim *Publication Date: 2000/04/01 *Binding Type: Hardcover *Grade Level: 1-2 *Language: English *Depth: 0.50 *Width: 11.00 *Height: 9.75
From the Publisher:
A flock of birds was moving toward me along the river, hovering over something floating on the water. It drifteddownstream, closer and closer, until finally it bumped up against the dock. Though it was covered with leaves and branches, now I could tell that it was a raft. I reached down and pushed some of the leaves aside. Beneath them was a drawing of a rabbit. It looked like those ancient cave paintings I'd seen in books--just outlines, but wild and fast and free.

Nicky isn't one bit happy about spending the summer with his grandma in the Wisconsin woods, but them the raft appears and changes everything. As Nicky explores, the raft works a subtle magic, opening up the wonders all around him--the animals of river and woods, his grandmother's humor and wisdom, and his own special talent as an artist.

"Best Books 2000 (School Library Journal)" and Children's Books 2000-NY Public Lib.

At first, Nicky is upset about being sent to his grandmother's home in Wisconsin for the summer, yet when he comes upon a raft, his feelings begin to change as he starts exploring the many wonders of the world around him found in the wood and on the river.
Annotation:
Nicky is less than thrilled to be spending his summer vacation with his grandmother in Wisconsin. But when his grandmother introduces him to the joys of rafting, the boy comes to appreciate not only the beauty of the natural world, but also life with his grandmother. Watercolor illustrations accompany the text, which is based on the author's childhood memories.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"The text's dreamy pace reflects both the river's gently rippling serenity and Nicky's deepening appreciation for the natural marvels he witnesses. It's an eye-filling, and soul-filling, idyll." April 15, 2000
