Gr 2-4-"We usually go to Connecticut. But this year, we are taking our family vacation on another planet." Readers then follow this Earth family's atypical vacation-seeing sites, eating green hot dogs, and picking wild chewing gum from bushes. Delhomme takes great pains to emphasize the differences and similarities between the two worlds but at times goes overboard in doing so, resulting in a flat, somewhat repetitious text. His distinctive paintings feature elongated figures, both human and alien. Vibrant, bold greens, reds, golds, and blues dominate this otherworld. Children may enjoy the idea of vacationing on another planet, but there's not enough here to sustain interest or warrant purchase.-Meghan R. Malone, Turner Free Library, Randolph, MA
