THE BLAKE FAMILY VACATION
From twirling, spinning, shaking and jerking…to family members with names like Buddycat, Moot, Bunk and Two-eyed… to pedaling, stretching and climbing to being chased by horses in a showdown, The Blake’s get more than they bargained for on this wacky vacation that’s truly unlike any they’ve ever had.
MARIE PLAYS HOMELESS
Marie wants a new Jeannie doll, but her dad won’t give her the money. She has a plan to acquire the money, but she never dreamed that the plan would change her mind. Some things are more important than either money or dolls.

Is the fire just an accident? Is something sinister afoot? Who dun it?
