When you were young, any trip with your folks was an adventure all the more when you're on your way to Vacationland. Skilled artist and writer Mark Ricketts's new publication 'Adventures in Vacationland' ($17.95, Islandport Press) gives readers a peek into the mind of the imaginative young Joe as he and his family travel to Maine to 'rescue' his Auntie.

Joe's take on the adventure is slightly different than items you may read in other guides to Maine life, but it's also familiar to anyone who has been here. The land is ruled by moose, and you may have to detour around gargantuan Maine coon cats, traverse enormous lupine forests and perhaps have to battle a giant mech-lobster named Cracker.
