On the Lookout!

On the Lookout Diptych

Martin is all set for a field trip to the dinosaur exhibit at the museum when the bus leaves without him!

In this second lively trio of illustrated stories, Martin Bridge is on the lookout – for that bus, for sandwiches made with eraser shavings, for an escaped parakeet and for a Park Ranger Super-Charged All-Night Flashlight. Includes three stories:  “Yesterday’s Party”, “Field Trip” and “Polly.”

The daily rhythms, struggles and triumphs of childhood — at home, at school and with friends — are evoked with warmth, understanding, honesty and humor.
