Stringbean's Trip to the Shining Sea
- 1988 Boston Globe - Horn Book Award Honor Book (Picture Book)
Here are the postcards and snapshots that Stringbean Coe and his brother Fred sent home from the long trip they made one summer in Fred's truck.
Their grandfather made this album for the family--and for you. Enjoy yourselves!
Love,Stringbean Coe, his big brother, Fred, and their dog, Potato, are driving from Kansas to California in a pickup truck with a little house built on the back. Reading the postcards they send home every day is the next best thing to having a cross-country adventure all your own.
