When Catherine the Great and I Were Eight!
The unsinkable heroine of Three Cheers for Catherine the Great! is back!
Saras Russian grandma, Catherine the Great, has promised to teach Sara how to float in the sea like a flower. So, on a sizzling summer day, they pile into Mr. Minskys old car with Mama and their neighbors and set out for the beach. At first things are fine. But then theyre not: theres a forgotten bathing suit, car trouble, and so many delays that everyone wonders if theyll ever get there. Everyone except Catherine the Great. With an enthusiastic Da! (Yes!), Saras grandma keeps Mr. Minskys car chugging down the road, until finally they arrive just in time for Sara to learn one more lesson from her beloved grandma.
With pictures full of charm and whimsy, this lively sequel to Three Cheers for Catherine the Great! demonstrates that when things go wrong, a positive attitude can make all the difference.
