Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 2–4—Family adventures begun in Travels with My Family (2006) and On the Road Again (2008, both Groundwood) continue for Charlie, younger brother Max, and their parents. This time they are off to Croatia after Charlie discovers an old postcard under the stove. With a dreamy, artistic mother and a slightly spacey father, Charlie and always-hungry Max are free (sometimes unbelievably so at the ages of roughly 12 and six) to engage in zany, episodic encounters with the local environment and personalities. Fascinated by a language with almost no vowels (they head to the island of Krk), Charlie narrates fishing attempts gone wrong, labyrinths with scary hermit "minotaurs" in the center, goats used as traffic control, and war-torn villages. Charlie's voice and humor lighten even the darker moments, and his interaction with, and eventual appreciation of, even the quirkiest characters will guide young readers by example. VERDICT While the picaresque format precludes either a complex plot or any significant character development, this fun romp, with a lovable narrator and enhanced by Gay's charming pencil drawings, is recommended for children graduating from beginning readers to chapter books.—Katherine Koenig, The Ellis School, PA --This text refers to the hardcover edition.


“...sprinkled with humor, moments of discovery, and an appreciation for the beauty and diversity of less-lauded destinations. ...a good choice for those new to chapter books or for struggling readers.” — School Library Journal

"Hints of gravity punctuate but do not puncture the holiday fun . . . A salutary, unusual look at part of the world rarely seen in North American children's literature, wrapped up in family fun." — Kirkus Reviews

"Charlie’s voice and humor lighten even the darker moments, and his interaction with, and eventual appreciation of, even the quirkiest characters will guide young readers by example." — School Library Journal

"The wryly amusing story shows that less popular destinations can offer unexpected rewards as well as new ideas to ponder." — Booklist

"The prose is spry, literate, and lively, making this, and the whole series, a must for budding world-travelers." — Horn Book
--This text refers to the hardcover edition.
