Like an ice-cold glass of
lemonade, this book is great anytime of the year but best enjoyed in
the summer. Nostalgia trickles from every page of this story about young
Douglas Spaulding and his magical summer of '28. Perfect for those too
old for their toys and too young for the burdens of adulthood.
The summer of '28 was a vintage season for a growing boy. A summer of green apple trees, mowed lawns, and new sneakers. Of half-burnt firecrackers, of gathering dandelions, of Grandma's belly-busting dinner. It was a summer of sorrows and marvels and gold-fuzzed bees. A magical, timeless summer in the life of a twelve-year-old boy named Douglas Spaulding remembered forever by the incomparable Ray Bradbury.
