Pick of the week is becoming more of a pick of the fortnight. But either way, this book fits this summer’s theme of travel and world cultures perfectly!
This book tells the true story of Casey Scieszka and Steven Weinberg who met and fell in love while they were both studying abroad in Morocco. After they graduated from college, they embarked on a journey through Asia and Africa (with a brief stop in France), where they ate the food, saw the sights, and tried to get to know the people. Casey writes, Steven draws, and together they share the good times and the bad of their adventures through different countries and cultures, and the adventure of trying to figure out what to do after college.
