Synopsis

Patty can’t wait for summer vacation! She’s five years old, finally a big girl, and she’s going to have a great time and remember every minute. Unfortunately, there aren’t any other kids her age at the lake, and big brother Eddie doesn’t want her tagging along with him and his friends. So Patty takes matters into her own hands—and ends up making a big splash none of them will ever forget!

The team who created Eddie: Harold’s Little Brother brings us another uplifting family story.
