Summary

Ten-year-old Aldo Zelnick has decided it’s fun to be artistic, and when his grandma Goosy gives him a second sketchbook, Aldo fills it with more comic drawings, fun words, and accounts of his extraordinary adventures in everyday life. When Aldo and his best friends, Jack and Bee, find a diamond ring, they can't decide if it’s real or fake; but real or not, they can't seem to hold on to it. As the trio hunts for the misplaced ring, they also learn about other countries and cultures. This second installment in an A-to-Z alphabet series includes a glossary of words to help kids broaden their vocabulary.
