"We are going on a hike. It's our favorite thing to do." With lyrical language that captures the majesty of the natural world coupled with fun narrative featured throughout, this spirited picture book tells the victorious story of three girls' friendship — and their tribulations and triumphs in the great outdoors. Here is the best and worst of any hike: from picnics to puffing and panting, deer-sighting to detours. It proves, as if proof were needed, what epic things can happen right in your own backyard.
Featuring a glossary, a sketchbook by one of the characters, abundant labels throughout, and scientific backmatter, this book is a must-have for budding scientists, best friends, and all adventurers.
"The trio exudes an easygoing confidence and egalitarianism — the handwritten narration is always in the collective we, and Hattie, the littlest, is a valued contributor to the cause ('Hattie always finds the route'). This sense of camaraderie, along with direct writing and that enthusiasm that animates the detailed, naïf-style art, quickly draws in the reader.... Readers may find it difficult to resist the call of the wild after closing the cover." — Publishers Weekly
