Product Overview

by James F. Bonomo The long days of summer vacation often promise adventure and new experiences, but for one eleven-year-old boy, the summer spent at his grandparents house at Rockaway Beach brings a rewarding mix of exploration, challenges, and life lessons. In Boardwalk Wolves, Weasels, and One Other Villain, young Laurie spends his days following his child-like logic and single-mindedness. Whether its struggling to understand the complex emotional world of adults, scheming with friends to vie for a coveted prize at the arcade, or enduring countless confrontations with a reckless and dangerous bully, Laurie learns that his actions can bring unintended consequences. One adventure in particular threatens everything he knows: trying to lure out the killer mad dog or is it a wolf? said to live under the boardwalk. When Laurie seeks to discover once and for all whether such a beast inhabits the beach, ultimately he finds something more valuable in the poignant outcome of this nostalgic tale.
