Editorial Reviews

Erica L. Stahler
Nine-year old Dilly can't wait to head off to sleepover camp. In diary entries, she couns down the days and details the unanticipated adjustment to and eventual delight with camp life. The blue-lined notebook pages bustle with handwritten entries, colorful doodles, snapshots, and amusing asides. Dilly's character, and her thoughts and feelings, are funny, forthright, and believable.

Dilly is going to camp and she cannot wait! She is looking forward to everything about it--sharing a bunk bed, learning to ride a horse, swimming, and befriending wild animals from the woods near by. However, Dilly's views on camp change when she arrives and realizes that all camp food is made with cheese (she hates cheese)! She cannot swim in the deep end of the lake because she can't back float, her horse is about as big as a poodle, and her fellow campers do not find her an irresistible companion. Dilly expresses all of her frustrations creatively and humorously in her diary through pictures and words. Eventually, Dilly finds her place in camp and admits to herself that it was everything and more than she had hoped. This book reads like a comic book with drawings and words filling every page in a whimsical fashion. Any young girl going off to camp or struggling with friendships would love this humorous account of a girl's growing pains. 1999, Millbrook Press Inc., Ages 7 to 10, $23.49 and $9.95. Reviewer: Andrea Sears Andrews
School Library Journal
Gr 3-5This visual and verbal delight brings to life the emotional ups and downs of three weeks at sleep-away camp. Dilly, who was convinced she would love camp, finds that its not exactly as shed envisioned. Eventually, her interest in frogs helps her to overcome the rough times and leads to new friends and the creation of a frog club. Enticing facts about these animals are interspersed with the girls observations about the people around her and each days events. Dillys journal is a dynamic, eye-popping extravaganza that gives readers insight into her energetic personality. The handwritten text uses colored markers and inventive lettering to highlight a word, phrase, or important information, and is supplemented with cartoon drawings and an occasional photograph. The narrative truly sounds as if a nine-year-old had written it. HELLO? Didnt I write a letter saying that I hate CHEESE? Cant you people READ? While kids about to attend summer camp might be made nervous by reading Dillys diary, they will ultimately be swept away by the childs pervasive sense of enjoyment and adventure. For experienced campers, this offering will bring back their own best and worst memories.Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
