This book is about Geronimo's grandfather William persuading him to join Thee, Benjamin, Trap, his cook, and himself on a trip to cold and dark Ratzikistan. Grandfather William expects Geronimo to write a guidebook. Geronimo doesn't want to go, but of curse, his relatives talk him into it. The illustrations are colorful and the typeset often changes in fun ways. The theme of the story is about accepting your family and traveling together. As someone who doesn't really like to travel, I can identify with Geronimo. This book is recommended for kids in grades one to three, however, there are a few difficult words, such as "obnoxious."
