Synopsis

Sally is going on holiday to an All-Inclusive-Country with her little brother Eddie, and Mum and Dad. But is it really true when Dad says that adults don’t have to use sunscreen? And that fries and ketchup from the buffet count as vegetables? Is it true that no one abroad understands her language? And did her Dad really run all the way to Italy when he was a boy, because there were no aeroplanes then? Sally will have an awesome (and madly embarrassing) holiday with her dad.

Reviews

"Hugely entertaining " – (Information)

"Outspoken, politically incorrect and free from raised fingers and spelt buns" – (Litteratursiden)

"We didn't have any doubts about this series. We knew right away that it would be perfect for the Polish market, though we didn't expect such great success. We have trouble seeing the series as picture books, not because of the amount of text, but the format and the target reader, because it's directed at a double reader: at kids that are a bit older than the usual picture book readers and at their parents (as in the case of Shrek). I'm not sure who has more fun reading these books: parents or children?" – Katarzyna Biegańska (Polish editor at Dwukropek)
