About the Author


Galen Longstreth grew up on Mercer Island, Washington, where she became a voracious reader, learned to drive stick on steep hills, swam in Lake Washington, and went on many outdoor adventures with her family. Though she has had a number of different jobs, she persistently maintains her connection to children’s literature. She has taught kindergarten in Philadelphia, sold children’s books at Powell’s Books in Portland, Oregon, and reviewed children’s books for a Washington State newspaper. She now works at a non-profit organization that provides picture books and professional development for teachers in kindergarten through third grade classrooms. She lives in Philadelphia.

Longstreth received her MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. She also has a Masters in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. She writes picture books, poetry, comics, and stories, all for children and young adults. She is currently working on a graphic novel script, a young adult novel, and a number of picture books. She and her brother, comics artist Alec Longstreth, are currently collaborating on a picture book about summer camp. Her work has appeared in comics anthologies published by Tugboat Press. Yes, Let’s is her first book.

Maris Wicks grew up exploring the woods of New England with her family. She now lives in sunny Somerville, MA with fellow illustrator Joe Quinones and their cat Biggs. Wicks has written and drawn for Spongebob Comics, Adhouse Books and Tugboat Press, and has recently finished the graphic novel Primates: The Fearless Science of Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Biruté Galdikas, written by Jim Ottaviani, for First Second Books. When she is not drawing, she can be found working as a program educator at the New England Aquarium.

What a great story about a family who heads off to the woods/camping park for a wonderful day. The story is told in rhyme about the adventures they have. From getting up, loading the car, taking a picture before they begin, hiking, swimming, picnicing to heading home they share a wonderful day full of family fun and adventure. Reading this story with your family before you head off on your own trip or setting the stage for a summer vacation would be fun. As another reviewer said about this family, "There is fun, there is reality, there is love." The pictures are great, showing the happy faces of the people, but also the wonderful dog that is part of the family and of course the adventure as well. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
