The Midwest country side might be boring to some people. But not to a young boy with a big imagination and a wide open summer. Day by day, on his trusted new used bike, he uncovers a whimsical land of soccer-playing windmills, flying windows with sage advice, and people who drive giant grasshoppers. 

 

This picture book, perfect for kids 6-12, presents one week in a young boy’s summer and the transformative power of imagination that turns familiar objects into magical creatures, monotonous landscapes into worlds of adventure.
