SUMMER FUN by Carolyn Haywood



Pub Date: April 15th, 1986
Publisher: Morrow

Ten short stories, some reprinted, some new, about summer adventures from the prolific and always popular Haywood. Betsy has a watermelon party, where each melon consumer collects seeds and the one with the most wins; Rodney tries to cheat by bringing seeds, only to discover that the party melons have white seeds, and his are black; Betsy has a mishap when she reads on a rock by the sea and doesn't notice the tide coming. Teddy and friends go exploring and bring home an animal with a peculiar smell. Quitely tame, as usual with Haywood, but one that kids would be glad to share.
