I didn't even know this was coming out (July 5th!) but was eager to read it since I loved the other two books in the series. Super silly answer to "What did you this summer?" Fans of Remy Charlip's Fortunately will enjoy the sense of humor. I love Benjamin Chaud's illustrations!

A student tells his teacher about what happened during his vacation, which gets progressively wilder and less credible as it progresses. Can the teacher possibly believe him?
Great, vivid illustration and funny, creative story. Love the ending.
