Aldo Zelnick is not an athlete like his older brother or a rock collector like his best friend; he is just a regular child who likes to draw. One summer Aldo's grandma, Goosy, gives him a sketchbook in which to record all of his ideas and adventures, and Aldo quickly discovers how much fun cartooning is. From petitioning for a neighbourhood pool slide to his passion for slushies, Aldo illustrates his summer holiday, wacky friends, and loving family in this charming comic novel that blends text with illustrations on every page. Engaging and entertaining, the story and drawings in this book will captivate both enthusiastic and reluctant young readers. This first instalment in an A-to-Z alphabet series includes a glossary of words to help kids broaden their vocabulary.
