Gaspard wanted a good vacation in Venice. He took off on a kayak and went on the canals. He ran into a gondola and all the people in it fell into the water. Gaspard ran away, and the police with his parents later found him. Gaspard learned not run away from his parents. I like this book because you can learn a lesson.
