This volume of the Elsie series is a treasure.
Even more enjoyable than the immediately previous volumes, Elsie and her family explore more of the world together through Captain Raymond's yacht
, the Dolphin. Taking a cruise through the Pacific, the family visits several countries through the winter months, keeping warm in the humid regions.
The reason why I found this particular volume to be more enjoyable than the previous few is because the author left behind the intense historical discussions that the characters had been getting into. There are some similar discussions in "Elsie's Winter Trip" that were comprise of topics of nature, animals or a bit about the visited countries, but not as intense as the historical textbook discussions had been... which made for more engaging book.
I can't believe I'm almost done reading the series!
