Irresistible summer fun

Just then we heard a fella yellin
He was sellin? watermelon . . .
We chomped and slurped
And gulped and burped,
Then Peter spit a seed at Sue. . . .

Four friends turn a boring summer day into a rollicking, watermelon-seed?spitting adventure that takes them all the way into the town square, where everyone can't help joining in on the fun. But when the mayor arrives, will she put a stop to it all?

Energetic, begging-to-be-read-aloud text and boisterous, hilarious illustrations combine to form a picture book that celebrates simple, good-natured mischief.
