From Booklist

Gr. 
1^-2.
Another seasonal entry in the Dial Easy-to-Read series.
This book about Lionel includes four stories.
In the first, Lionel decides how to celebrate the longest day of the year.
He next manages to stay awake to watch the Fourth of July fireworks.
In the third story, he sells his lemonade stand to his sister Louise, and finally, Lionel and Louise begin a car trip as backseat rivals but soon become allies in manipulating their parents.
Lightened by a refreshingly childlike humor, the stories will appeal to young readers who know Lionel, as well as those meeting him here for the first time.
Natti's expressive colored-pencil drawings with watercolor washes look as bright as a summer day.
Good fun for young readers.

About the Author

"I did not have the kind of childhood most people would choose to write about. 
It was happy and uneventful, with only the occasional bump in the night to keep me on my toes.
In my spare time, however, I often imagined myself in various stories -- as Mighty Mouse, Robin Hood, Popeye or Superman."I always liked to make up stories, especially lying in bed at night before I fell asleep."It was not until I was twenty that I actually took up ceative writing.
One of my favorite parts of the process was imagining myself in various characters' shoes, even if those characters - dragons for example - didn't wear shoes at all.
A year later, in 1975, I graduated from Hamilton College andbegan a six-month internship at the New York Times Book Review."Since then I have been a full-time writer for children.
I married my wife, Joan, in 1984,and we settled in my hometown of Lexington, Massachusetts, where we live with our two sons, Andrew and Peter."When I feel like I've spent enough time hunched over my computer, I like to play soccer and softball, and read books written by other people."copyright © 2000 by Penguin Putnam Books for Young Readers.
