A funny, adventure-packed picture book for children ages 4-7, inspired by radio personality Grant Lawrence’s bestselling memoir Adventures in Solitude
The Lawrence family is on their way to a rustic cabin in BC’s remote Desolation Sound, but not everyone is excited. Young Grant and his little sister Heather would rather stay at home in the city and watch TV. The long drive has so many twists and turns that it makes them sick. 
When the family finally arrives, it’s too dark, the toilet is outside, and the neighbours are weird. But slowly, the kids discover the magic of the place and learn that there’s a lot more to life than television, gaining confidence through exciting and hilarious adventures with family and new friends. Now they can’t wait to come back next summer!
