Every year a boy and his family go camping at Mountain Pond. They see things like an eagle fishing or a salamander with red spots. However, this year is different. To begin with, the boy is going into first grade. His mother is encouraging him to do more things on his own. In addition, a tiger comes to the woods – SURPRISE! With lyrical prose and dazzling art, Pulitzer Prize finalist Susan Choi and Caldecott-honor winning artist John Rocco have created a moving and joyful ode to growing up.
