From purple blobs and desert islands to the laboratory of America's most inventive Inventor, this outrageously exciting family guidebook features both indoor attractions and outdoor adventures for all members of the family, including cool excuses to get muddy and super-fun reasons to dress up. It reveals all the best beaches and parks, tons of free things to do and see, and awesome festivals and happenings throughout the year.

But make no mistake:

      Every page is a visual feast, combining practical ideas and inside tips on free things to do with freaky factoids, fascinating legends and hilarious quizzes. Several spokes-creatures, including Marigold the loggerhead turtle, Freckles the hermit crab and a roseate spoonbill named Rosie, get into the conversation along with a couple of dastardly pirates who provide helpful (and sometimes I'm pertinent) commentary.

       A (mostly) Kids' Guide to Sanibel & Captiva Islands and the Fort Myers Coast   spans the generations, making it an enchanting read for parents, grandparents, educators, armchair travelers and even grownups without children.

      In this guidebook one must expect the unexpected, such as where to encounter a tiny real-life sea creature with the head of a donkey, the tail of a monkey and the pouch of a kangaroo (hint: it's a seahorse!) or a restaurant where waiters wear chickens on their heads. It also includes websites and phone numbers for 150-plus attractions, outfitters and resources.
