"Meet Boris," this book begins. "He's a lot like you." And he is. A young reader who enjoys normal things and who yearns for travel, adventure, and excitement. The yearning might be a little more pronounced for Boris since he knows his parents once traveled the world in their home, a van that has been converted to a permanent location for raising this little one. His parents see his desire and get the van mobile for the first time in his life. He's thrilled, until he realizes they are only going to the area nature preserve instead of the furthest wilds of Africa and Asia. Eventually, though, Boris begins to enjoy his adventure and realizes he's having a great time, just like his favorite literary adventurer, Captain Clive.

This is truly a hybrid reading experience, part picture book, part early reader, and part beginning chapter book. With its relatable theme and appealing format, it's a definite winner.
