Description of this Book

Sam pointed the camera and peered at its screen. The tiny square filled with the miniature lake, miniature black spruce, miniature jack pine, even more miniature ... what? What was that? He blinked, moved his nose closer to the images, stared. It was a ... gigantic shadow ... a creature tucked between the trees! Sam is on his annual family holiday, travelling with his Canadian grandparents to Prince Albert National Park. However, instead of learning about nature photography with his grandfather as normally would, Sam is having to adjust to Grandpa's recent stroke and resulting disabilities. Then, as if that isn't bad enough, a girl in the next cabin, Taneal, just won't take no for an answer and follows him everywhere. Sam and Taneal don't agree on much of anything, particularly what kind of creature Sam's caught glimpses of with his camera. Is it a giant black bear or could it be something even more mysterious?
