Have you ever heard of Jeloway, Ks? That's where the Coe Springs Motel is located. I'm assuming the Coe family own and operate the motel as travel postcards are mailed to the Coe family at that address. "Stringbean's Trip to the Shining Sea" by Vera B. and Jennifer Williams is a charming book, guaranteed to captivate young and old. Join Stringbean (official name is Cesar Coe) and his big brother, Fred, as they embark on a trip from Kansas to California in an old pick-up truck. Fred's truck is complete with sleeping quarters and a fold down kitchen. Stringbean and Fred send postcards from the fascinating places they visit on their way to the pacific ocean. What a delight to read each postcard! And will Stringbean and Fred ever catch up with the circus? A clown left his big shoe behind, and Stringbean is determined to return it to its proper owner. I hope you will find this picture book for older readers as delightful and sweet as I did. Happy reading!
