Albert's Almost Amazing Adventure (Hardcover)
Albert's vacation was amazing--or so he thought. To his friends, his time in Maine was boring. Dull. Lame. They've got a much more vivid idea of what Albert could, and should, have done on his trip. But Albert might just have a surprise for his friends, after all.Marty Kelley tells this wonderful read-aloud story in a fresh and imaginative way, contrasting panels of black-and-white charcoal drawings of dull old Albert with bursting-with-color spreads of what Albert's friends imagine for his summer adventures. Just what did Albert do during his trip to Maine?
