Published by CUSTOM BOOK PUBLICATIONS Summer vacation holds little promise for Oliver. Offered a thirteenth birthday present of joining his grandmother for a vacation in Great Britain, he quickly accepts. With only several children and some unpromising adults, too late he realizes there are few others on the tour with whom he can make friends. In England, Scotland, and Wales, Oliver finds friends in unpredictable places. He and eighty-year old Mr. Hahn spend time together, and he finds an ally in the Scots bus driver when he seeks to meet a popular British band. He achieves hero status when he fearlessly races after a thief and recovers a purse stolen outside York Cathedral. By the time the Wonder World tour ends, Oliver has discovered that friends can be young or old and that friendship is forged in the most unexpected ways. Friendship is a grand adventure... For 8-16 year-olds
