Fascinating story, Amy! I found it especially interesting since I work as a writer for the Michigan DNR, telling stories about our state parks and trails. And, as always, I love your drawings! Thank you for sharing.

Awesome and fascinating piece! It's like an episode of Parks and Rec, but mostly just Parks. I can see poor Leslie Knope trying to shut down the beer garden, clearly run by Jeremy Jamm. :)

Love that the names match the action! Such a great story, with illustrations that do it justice.

Being UK-based with lots of opportunities to visit the US, I find these stories fascinating. I'm looking forward to more park visits soon.

“Al’s habit of literally betting his life with those who would win if he died, was not a stable way to riches.” So many bonus points to Ms. Lindgren for that perfectly understated line!
