About the Author:

Patricia Polacco lives in Union City, Michigan.

From Booklist:

Gr. K-3. First introduced in The Graves Family (2003), this odd group, along with some young friends and Phoebe the Venus Flytrap, the family's houseplant, head off to Lake Bleakmire for a camping trip, where Dr. Graves will collect some specimens. The mildly macabre Graves family find slimy toads and bilge leeches, but not until they come upon a fire-breathing Flatulent Sulphuric Fermious Flying Griffin, do things really get exciting. The griffin loves the humans so much, it tries to prevent them from leaving camp. But Dr. Graves has to be home to supervise the Fourth of July fireworks. What to do? A little too wordy and, oddly, not quite silly enough, this will still elicit some giggles. Kids will especially like the ending, in which a giant burp from the beast saves the fireworks show. Polacco maintains a loose hand here, letting her artwork flow across the pages; she goes for laughs, with most of the humor coming from the strange animals that populate the pages. For larger libraries or those where the first book is popular. Ilene Cooper
