Scary Holiday

Everybody loves a holiday in the sun, except Maja. What's the point of standing in endless queues, jumping from diving towers into waves that could throw anyone over? Luckily, Maja has Daddy who is big and strong and fearless, so it doesn't matter much that Maja is a scaredy-cat. But what happens when Daddy all of a sudden vanishes?
