Garden Grove, Calif. (PRWEB) December 18, 2013
In Janette Bickford’s new children’s book “Vern’s Vacation” (published by Trafford Publishing), she regales readers with the story of a caterpillar and his adventures traveling with a human family taking a vacation to see a baseball game.
One day, the middle child of a human family, Brett, meets Vern, the middle child of a caterpillar family. The two hit it off instantly. After Brett introduces Vern to the rest of his family, everyone decides, Vern’s parents willing, to take Vern on a vacation with them.
Vern joins Brett’s family on the trip of his life as he takes his first car ride, stays in his first hotel, enjoys a swimming adventure, rides his first metro and attends his first ballgame, where he gets to nibble on a hotdog and popcorn. Throughout their journey, Brett and Vern’s friendship grows as they become closer to one another.
An excerpt from “Vern’s Vacation”:
“The boys took turns talking to Vern, pointing out the sights, the big buildings and churches, flowers and lakes. They finally came to a great big building called a hotel, and Vern was really happy to arrive because he was feeling just a little carsick and queasy. The family parked the car, got out all their luggage, checked in, and started toward their room. And that’s when Vern found out what real queasiness was, cause he went on his first what the boys called an elevator ride. His tummy was doing flip flops all the way to the 37th floor.”
Readers will enjoy stepping out of their world of quiet desperation to enjoy a wondrous tale of friendship and adventure. “The book describes how simple things can be and still be enjoyable and entertaining,” says Bickford.
