Nine-year-old Maurice’s world includes Norwegian camp, interviewing a mosquito, and the terror of his big sister getting her driver’s license. This inventive and hilarious series of stories is about family, life’s surprises, and the great delight of brain freeze from an icy treat. You just may recognize your own family, and magical summer-time adventuring fun!


“Kling is a keen observer, and Best Summer Ever evinces that acuity with details of things that make summer fun, including icy treats, cookouts and stories from Grandpa.” –Star Tribune
