Family Hitchcock by Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett

“The annual family vacation. Every year since he could remember, his father and mother had taken them on some sort of summer trip. When the kids were little, the vacations had been fun – at least, that’s how Maddy and Benji remembered them. Hawaii. The Grand Canyon. When Benji was six, they had spent a week in New York seeing shows.”

“But over the past few years a once - fine family tradition had gone sour. In Disneyland, their mother had made them wear so much sunscreen both children had come back whiter than when they had left. In Alaska, their father took one too many pictures of a grizzly, goading the giant bear into charging their minivan.”

You get the picture.

Benji and his sister, Maddy, dread the idea of this year’s family trip. Read about this year’s Hitchcock family vacation found in the j Fiction section of the children’s room at Hibbing Public Library.
