Forced to stay indoors during a rainstorm, young Sam drinks hot chocolate, reads and dreams of adventures while his Granddad does paperwork until the need to mail an important letter triggers an adventure into the wet outdoors.
It's the hottest day of the year, hotter than broccoli soup, hotter than the Atacama Desert, hotter than the surface of the sun. It's just the right kind of day for a boy and his granddad to go for a picnic. But as the sun beats down, Granddad keeps having to stop for a rest, and by the time they find the perfect picnic spot, some pirates have beaten them to it. Good thing they have enough food to share! -- from Amazon.
