It's a big family reunion, and all the cousins share the joys of running wild and being with people who love them even when they're covered with mud.

“We are wild and fierce. We do not wait for invitations.” It’s time for the annual family reunion, and the dozens of cousins are running wild like beasties. Like hungry ogres! They hug fluttering aunts and soft-spoken elders, play in the creek, shimmy up trees, take “double-dog dares,” and devour “the sweet juiciness of the world” along with hot dogs and watermelon. Hilarious side stories unfold in Catrow’s fantastically colorful, chaotic spreads that gambol and splash with comical caricatures of grinning kinfolk large and small. A lively, lyrical celebration of the sweet, sweet abandon of running amok among those who love you best.

A family reunion becomes a gleefully wild romp for a multicultural group of young cousins. Muddy, spiky-haired, and bug-eyed, the exuberant young "beasties" go running, roaring, and splashing around the family's farm and the nearby creek, spitting watermelon seeds, chasing fireflies, and scaring the chickens. Though the cousins' behaviour is far from polite, readers of all ages will be swept up in their sheer joy at tasting "the sweet juiciness of the world."
