Complete with her signature cast of eccentric characters, absurd situations, and heartfelt moments, the Newbery Honor author of "Everything on a Waffle" writes an on-the-road epic like no other in this story of a young boy, who goes on an unforgettable summer vacation.
From the Publisher:
When his parents go to Africa to work as missionaries, twelve-year-old Henry's eccentric aunts, Pigg and Mag, take him on a cross-country car trip, allowing him to gain insight into his family and himself.When his parents go to Africa to work as missionaries, twelve-year-old Henry's eccentric aunts, Pigg and Mag, take him on a cross-country car trip, allowing him to gain insight into his family and himself.
Annotation:
Henry's summer is overtaken by a crazed road trip with his two dreaded child-hating, interior decorating aunts, Magnolia (Mag) and Pigg (a family name). When his mother goes haring off to Africa bent on being a missionary, with his disbelieving father in tow, Henry is left at home with Mag and Pigg, who decide it's time to see the world. Their experiences range from the deeply unpleasant--a jellyfish attack--to the extraordinarily difficult--being stranded on a raft in a national park. Henry gets to know his aunts better than he ever thought possible. Polly Horvath is both a Newbery Honor Book medalist and a National Book Award recipient.

Praise

Publishers Weekly
"Horvath...possesses the unique ability to make extraordinary events (such as brushes with death) appear perfectly ordinary while extracting something profound from occurrences as run-of-the-mill as a jaunt to the bookstore." 07/27/2005
