Sneak peak: “When the storm broke, an enormous bull appeared in the middle of the road. As we eased past, the stalwart creature snorted and began running alongside our little Prius, as if we’d challenged him to a race. ‘We can almost touch him!’ Tristan exclaimed. Zach thrust his hand into the damp air, nearly succeeding.”
