Book 5 of my #30booksummer is The Pennypackers Go On Vacation by Lisa Doan. This is an excellent summer vacation read that is full of humor, mystery, and adventure. Those who enjoy James Patterson books (like iFunny or Jacky Ha-Ha) should check out this book. This book is brand new and will be released on June 25, 2019. It will also be available in my classroom library in the fall.
Mr. Pennypacker, true to his name is cheap. He's never taken his family on vacation; instead, he's hosted annual vacations in his backyard transforming it by having his family imagine their in places like the Maine wilderness. This year though, he got a bonus from work and Mrs. Pennypacker has decided that it's time they have a true vacation. The Pennypackers end up on a rickety former fishing boat filled with Disney-like characters. As they're leaving port in Miami, two men in suits chase the captain onto the boat. The mysterious men show up again at the next port causing the ship to leave in a hurry. Charlie, the Pennypacker's son, is positive that the ship's captain is caught up with the mob, and he and his former best friend Gunter Hwang set out to find out what's going on. #thepennypackersgoonvacation #lisadoan #humor #adventure #disneylike #pirates #kidlit #mg #mglit #mgreads #middlegradereads #middlegradelit #readinginthemiddle #30booksummer #summerread #summer2019 - 6 minutes ago
