Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Fournier
Camping could be a wonderful experience if indeed you like to camp. Dan is sure he hates to camp, even though he's never been before. Much to his dismay, Dan's mother accepts an invitation for Dan to go on his first campout with her boyfriend, Mike and his two children. Kim and Raymond can't stand Dan, and their presence makes the trip seem even more unappealing. The trip starts out with a bang as they struggle to get their tent set up, tip their canoe over, and even get lost on the way to the bathroom. Despite these would-be catastrophes, Dan survives his trip and actually enjoys the adventure. He also learns to see the best in Kim and Raymond as they work together to make the trip a success. The author's sense of humor makes this a book that children and even adults will be able to relate to.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-- When Dan's mother sends him on an overnight camping trip with her boyfriend, Mike, and his two children, Dan is less than optimistic. By the end of the story, the title still applies, but readers can appreciate the humorous, competitive, and realistic happenings that have caused the four campers to gain an understanding of one another. Dan and Raymond are the same age; they spend time sparring to see who has the greater wit or the lesser maturity, as they reluctantly discover that they have much in common. Younger Kim, an enthusiastic, knowledgeable camper, is also smart enough to call her brother's bluff without rubbing it in. Mike is the cheerful leader; aside from wanting the trip to go well he relaxes enough to do his share of the teasing. There is plenty of well-paced and sometimes very funny dialogue. Petersen focuses on the outing and his characters' interactions with fine style; readers just beginning chapter books will identify with these people and will laugh at and with them. --Carolyn Jenks, Oyster River Elementary School, Durham, NH
