Synopsis: It's the hottest, most boring day of summer vacation! It's so hot and boring, it feels like you're in a mall that's made of really, really hot lava! Confused? That's okay. It will all make sense once you meet Joey, Danny and Jacqui.
Will the three siblings find a way to cool down? Can they turn this boring day around? Will aliens take over the world? Wait... what?
A Reel Cool Summer has all the ingredients for a great movie adventure: a pirate, a princess, a prize and a pig (well, two pigs... well, actually, two guinea pigs)!
It's summertime, it's HOT, and it's boring...what are Joey, Danny, and Jacqui to do? Mom basically said no to the pool idea, so now what? Just when it seems boredom will be the theme this summer, Joey finds a flyer. All the kids have to do is make a movie, but the deadline is only a few hours away. Can they pull it off and come away with the big prize?
I just love this story. As a mom of four, I have heard the "we're bored" statement more times than I can count. A Reel Cool Summer shows kids how to get creative and have fun with what's already available to them around the house. The illustrations are fantastic and the story line is highly entertaining. I definitely recommend picking up a copy. Available on Amazon.
