Book of the Week (12/4/2017)

The Bobhouse: A Winnipesaukee Adventure by Andy Opel, Illustrated by Karel Hayes & John Gorey (Portsmouth, NH: Peter E. Randall Publisher, 2017).

Just in time for the holiday season, there is a new book from the Lake Winnipesaukee adventures series!
Every year, Lake Winnipesaukee freezes in the winter, presenting new challenges to residents and visitors. The ice gets so thick it supports snowmobiles, cars, and small fishing shacks called “bobhouses.” For a few weeks in the winter, there is an FAA approved runway in Alton Bay where airplanes land on the ice. Each year, people attempt to predict “ice out.” The official “ice out” is declared when the M/S Mount Washington can travel to every port of call. -- Publisher's blurb.
There will be a book signing with the illustrator, Karel Hayes, at The Country Bookseller in Wolfeboro, NH on Saturday, December 9, 2017 from 1 to 3 pm.
