Description

It's hugs and kisses and froufrou galore when Granddaddy Bubba, Grandma Ruby, Aunt Sapphire, Cousin Arlene, and her dog, Bitsy, arrive in Bubbaville. But Bubba and Beau are NOT enjoying the party. That is, until they round up Arlene and Bitsy and head for their favorite squishy, squashy, muddy spot in the garden where, Sister, the fun finally begins.

Not since the cows came home has anyone captured the thrills, chills, and spills of a surprise visit from the relatives with quite this much wit and humor. So come along for some bodacious family fun in the third book in the hilarious Bubba and Beau series.
