The summer is finally here and the family are leaving the city. It is time to pack up and go to the cabin. It is time for spending days in the little boat Mayfly. It is time for swimming, sunburns, picking blueberries, and spending quiet time in the hammock. The author of this marvellous little book beautifully captures the atmosphere of a summer vacation. With her minimal text and her delightful multimedia collage artwork she brings together all the scents, sounds and experiences of the family, and she gives us a portrait of a very special time and place.
