This is a lovely story of Joe and Cody. During the summer months they travel in the northern reaches of Manitoba, far into the lakes country. It is a very isolated area and there are no other children to play with. That does not stop the boys, they make playthings of those items they find around them. Their favourite play things are the dragonflies which they turn into kites.
This book is wonderfully illustrated by Brian Deines.
