Ralphie’s Cool Vacation

Ralphie’s Cool Vacation


By: Jeffery Carter

Inspired by the incredible true story of the first masked booby to set foot on Massachusetts soil, Ralphie’s Cool Vacation tells the tale of a brave tropical bird who craves adventure but eventually learns that there’s no place like home.

Roaming the seashore of his tropical home in Barbados, Ralphie comes across a group of ruddy turnstones who tell him about a cool place called Cape Cod.   Though he knows very little about migration, Ralphie wants to visit this place after hearing their stories and decides he must see it for himself. Follow Ralphie through this light-hearted adventure as he encounters a variety of helpful creatures along the way, including a flying fish, a fiddler crab, a great blue heron and a hurricane named Jose.
