Miguel Guzman isn't exactly looking forward to the summer now that his mother has agreed to let the Sword family--a father, his three daughters, and their dog--live with them while they decide whether or not to move to Vermont. Little does Miguel know his aunt has something up her sleeve that just may make this the best summer ever. With her usual flair for creativity and fun, T#65533;a Lola decides to start a summer camp for Miguel, his little sister, and the three Sword girls, complete with magical swords, nighttime treasure hunts, campfires, barbecues, and an end-of-summer surprise!

The warm and funny third book in the T#65533;a Lola Stories is sure to delight young readers and leave them looking forward to their own summer fun!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In this third Tia Lola series title, Miguel, 11, is unhappy when his mother invites a New York City family three girls, their lawyer father, and their slobbery dog to spend a summer week in his Vermont farmhouse. The girls are just as unhappy to be there; they'd rather be at Disney World. But when Tia Lola, Miguel's aunt from the Dominican Republic, creates a fun summer camp, the kids discover that the Vermont countryside has its very own magic. Never solemn, Tia Lola's messages, in Spanish and English, are as much fun as the spats and reconciliations between family and friends.--Rochman, Haze. Copyright 2010 Booklist"
