Where Does Joe Go? Written and illustrated by Tracey Campbell Pearson, Published by Farrar, Straus & Giroux 1999, Hardcover ISBN 0-374-38319, Softcover ISBN 0-374-48366-3. Summary: Joe's Snack Bar is a favorite spot. Customers from all over town line up to buy ice cream cones and french fries throughout the summer. But every time autumn rolls around, Joe shuts down shop and disappears until the next summer. The townspeople have their own ideas about where he goes. "He's gone to the moon," cries tiny June. "In Okefenokee!" screams Mrs. Bodoky. Everyone imagines him in all sorts of places with all kinds of customers, including alligators in the swamp, elephants on a safari, having tea with a queen and on the street in New York City. But Joe lets the reader know on the last page, without a word, what he is really up to every winter.

SUMMARY

A Christmas story for all year round!

Joe’s Snack Bar is a favorite summer spot where happy customers from all over town come to buy ice cream cones and french fries. But every time autumn rolls around, Joe shuts down shop and disappears until the next summer. The townspeople all have their own theories about where he goes: “He’s gone to the moon,” cries tiny June. “He’s on a safari,” says Charlie McFarley. “In Okefenokee!” screams Mrs. Bodokey. They’re all wrong, of course. Joe’s actually in charge at the North Pole three quarters of the year, but only Joe and the reader will ever know. Food-and-fun-filled illustrations show how each person imagines what Joe could be up to.
