The Truth About My Unbelievable Summer by Davide Cali and Benjamin Chaud



What really happened over the summer break? A curious teacher wants to know. The epic explanation? What started out as a day at the beach turned into a globe-spanning treasure hunt with high-flying hijinks, exotic detours, an outrageous cast of characters, and one very mischievous bird! Is this yet another tall tale, or is the truth just waiting to be revealed? From the team behind I Didn’t Do My Homework Because . . . and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to School . . . comes a fantastical fast-paced, detail-rich illustrated summer adventure that’s so unbelievable, it just might be true!



The Truth About My Unbelievable Summer is an incredibly imaginative tale that will take you on an adventure around the world and beyond.  Just when you expect the teacher to berate him for what appears to be a tall tale – there is a fun twist! Trust me parents, you are likely to let out a laugh yourselves reading this title.

The illustrations are really fun and full of little details – I notice something new every time we read through this book. There is even a fun reference to 20 thousand leagues under the sea that parents will enjoy.

The format of this book is smaller than your typical hard cover book but that actually makes story time a little less awkward.

The Truth About My Unbelievable Summer is a fantastic tale children and parents will fall in love with.
