Archie’s Vacation

Archie's Vacation Book CoverArchie has been hard at work and could use a carefree vacation. Instead of dreaming of the upcoming good times, Archie frantically packs the proper accessories for any imaginable situation including poor weather conditions or eating too much. When Archie tries to force his extremely over-packed suitcase closed, it explodes dramatically as illustrated in a four-page foldout. The dapper, clever canine thinks of a comical solution and finally heads off to paradise. The warm mixed media art and sparing text of Archie’s simple musings such as “canoe? snorkels? cooler?” create a humorous sense of urgency. cc
