By Shanda Cameron, Illustrations by Danielle Shreenan
After a 20-year career as a veterinary technician, local author Shanda Cameron has a keen understanding of the charm of animals and why kids form such strong emotional attachments to them. In this heartwarming and deliciously silly frolic, she shares the story of a group of barnyard animals enjoying a day of summer vacation. Young kids will love the absurdity of waterskiing livestock, cats and mice having a water-balloon fight, and horses running a lemonade stand. Artist Danielle Shreenan’s lively illustrations nicely punctuate the tale, adding warmth and humour.
