Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A triumph of friendship, ingenuity, and fun!" - Read Kiddo Read, Ultimate Summer Reading List"

Will make their devoted fans very happy campers indeed." - The Horn Book Magazine

Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
As the story opens, seven-year-old Bean is not very content because her older sister, Nancy, is going off to day camp and she must stay home because she is not old enough to attend Girl Power 4-Ever Camp. But with the help of her best friend Ivy, they soon decide to establish a camp of their own in a nearby public park. Using masking tape and a pair of old curtains, Bean constructs a tent to serve as headquarters for "Camp Flaming Arrow." With the program from Nancy's camp, the girls appoint themselves as counselors and build a daily program. Of course the sessions do not turn out quite like they are supposed to, but attendance and fun continue to grow with each passing day. The grand finale is a mighty battle between the forces of Queen Boudicca and the Roman soldiers that somehow ends up in the fountain with everyone very wet and the park totally free of trash. Fans of the other eight books in this series will certainly enjoy this newest tale. It is cleverly and realistically written to accurately portray today's youngsters and their adventures. The pen and ink illustrations are a perfect complement to the text as they clearly portray the action and emotion of the characters. Place this volume on the first purchase list as it is sure to be popular. Reviewer: Sylvia Firth
Kirkus Reviews
It's spring break, and Bean's big sister, Nancy, is off to Monkey Park, where she'll get to spend every day having secret, big-kid fun at Girl Power 4-Ever Camp for girls 11-14. Bean is 7. No way is Bean attending Puppet Fun! She and Ivy can make their own fun. After a false start (one board does not a tree house make; some things are beyond even duct tape's powers), Ivy has a brilliant idea, and Camp Flaming Arrow is born. When their moms let these small agents of chaos visit the park on their own, readers will know what to expect. Nancy's camp offers Crafts, Dance and First Aid; so does Ivy and Bean's--with a difference. Their friendship bracelets turn into chains binding Houdini hand and foot. Their tap dancing (stick thumbtacks into shoe soles, climb onto old metal wash tub and voilà!) is more fun than a silly old dance routine--louder anyway. Their First Aid, with the help of fake blood and bandages, morphs into a game of Zombies among the Puppet Fun kids. Quickly acquiring an enthusiastic following, the two inventive camp counselors give a whole new meaning to Girl Power. As usual, Blackall's art conveys the girls' anarchically imaginative glee, bringing the mischief and mayhem to messy, hilarious life. Making the rules rules! (Fiction. 6-9)

This delightful series just keeps on giving. Adventures of two little girls who seem to find something to get into or out of no matter how hard they try to be "good". Fun to listen to while my 6 year old granddaughter reads or fun for me to read to her.

|next in 'Magyk (septimus heap series #1)'. Quest apps at number the stars.| The first cabins we visited was the Athena Cabin which wasn't that impressive to me. Next was the Nike Cabin which had lots of trophies littered around everywhere. So we went to every cabin and Jack would tell me the god or goddess it stood for then some campers that were nice in thst cabin. I found out that he was senior counselor of his cabin which was Ares. The last one we went to was the Hera cabin. Inside it was dark and everything was ordered neatly. In the middle was a statue of the goddess herself. Hera Statue looked very regal and ready for anything. "Nobody lives here because she only has children with Zeus. But since the giants the gods aren't so pleased with her." I nodded and walked around the room. Just then a bell rang. "Dinner time," Jack said smiling. "Already?"
