Shout Out for the Fitzgerald-Trouts

(2) 4-6 Illustrated by Lee Gatlin. In this third adventure (following Knock About with the Fitzgerald-Trouts), the five self-reliant, adults-free children are back living in their small green car and facing some interpersonal challenges. The overarching question--can they maintain their family solidarity and still develop as individuals?--never weighs down a rollicking, vertiginous plot. A new illustrator provides a fresh take on the spirited Fitzgerald-Trouts and their inviting tropical-island home.
