A schoolboy tell his class about his summer vacation, during which he joined a group of cowboys and stopped a cattle stampede.
How I Spent My Summer Vacation is an imaginative read from a little boy names Bleff (that was a name I’ve never heard before) who tells in class how he spent his summer being adopted into a band of cowboys. The book has some clever rhyming, and the little boy saves the day when he uses a red tablecloth to steer the stampeding cows away. I’m not sure there’s a particular lesson to draw from the book–perhaps, be creative and solve problems.
