Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2Jumping and stumping on their way, a group of discontented camels leave the desert only to discover that there is no place like home. Bumped in boxcars and whumped by fussy bus passengers, they give up pumping bikes and stump on to a plane from which they jump with parachutes so that they can once again clump about the desert. Staccato phrasing and the rhyme make this a fun read-aloud. The "ump" sounds readily invite enthusiastic participation as children thump, and occasionally slump, with these voyaging dromedaries. The various types of travel from trucks to boats are easily identifiable in the illustrations. The double-page spreads in a warm, softly bright palette of cut paper collage capture the mood and action of the text. The amusing expressions and positions of these five malcontents, whose broad shapes fill the pages, further enhance the fun. Lines that draw readers into the action also catapult their eyes beyond the boundaries of the pages. Youngsters will enjoy this merry romp with these "ships of the desert."Carol Schene, Taunton Public Schools, MA
Susan Dove Lempke
After a day crossing the desert ("Hot! Dry! Dusty! Slow! GRUMP, GRUMP, GRUMP!" ), five camels leave their passengers sleeping in the moonlight and depart for greener pastures. Each type of transportation they try has some disadvantage, so they're happy to find themselves back in the desert with their owners after having to parachute from a plane. The short rhymes and the animal misadventures may remind youngsters of Nancy Shaw's "Sheep in a Jeep" (1986), but these cranky camels have a charm of their own. Taylor's droll animals maintain a lofty attitude, even as they squeeze onto a bus, with their expressions becoming gradually more comically displeased until the camels return "back to the desert, home sweet home! CLUMP, CLUMP, CLUMP!"
