Sassy stories volume 2.

Pub. Date:
1st ed.
It's summer vacation, and Sassy and her family are headed to Florida to visit Grammy for her birthday. A huge celebration is planned at Grammy's beach house. Sassy can't wait! But the weatherman says a hurricane is swirling in the Atlantic, and could be coming right toward Grammy's town. So much for family fun- everyone's too busy boarding up their houses and stocking up on food. To make matters worse, the local sea turtles' lives are threatened, there's no electricity, stores are closed, and there's no birthday cake. Thanks to Sassy's sparkle sack, time spent in Florida turns into a unique celebration. Sassy learns that family is more important than decorations and ice cream- and that love is the best gift of all.
