Overview

The Critter Club is going camping—but are they really ready for a weekend in the wilderness?

When Liz invites the Critter Club girls to her house at Marigold Lake for the weekend, they are really excited for their camping adventure—especially because Marigold Lake is known for having lots of wildlife! While the girls are there, they plan to do stuff like swim and canoe in the lake, go on a nature walk, and camp out.

But with every activity, something seems to go horribly wrong. Amy accidentally tips over the canoe when the girls are out on the lake; Ellie gets spooked by what she thinks is a snake on their walk; and Marion is not pleased about sleeping outside in a tent. Liz thinks her friends aren’t having fun, and she starts to feel awful. Will the great weekend she planned turn out to be a disaster?

With easy-to-read language and illustrations on almost every page, The Critter Club chapter books are perfect for beginning readers.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lorrie-Ann Melnick
Liz Jenkens and her three best friends, Ellie, Marion, and Amy, are spending a three-day weekend together at Liz’s lake cabin on Marigold Lake. Liz loves the lake and plans to have lots of fun with her friends, but everything she plans goes wrong! Liz sets up a campsite next to a fire pit with plans to spend the night roasting s’mores but Marion is afraid to sleep outside. Liz leads the girls on a nature walk to collect leaves for a leaf print, but their walk is cut short when Ellie mistakes a stick for a snake. Liz tries to make it up to the girls by taking them on a canoe ride only to have the boat tipped over by Amy, with all the girls in it! Things turn around when some unexpected guests arrive—baby mice! The Critter Club members band together to take care of the adorable little creatures. They reminisce over all their misadventures and realize that friendship makes every adventure fun. Simple language, large font, and illustrations on almost every page make this book accessible to first early chapter book readers. Part of “The Critter Club” series. Reviewer: Lorrie-Ann Melnick; Ages 6 to 10.

  • Meet the Author

    Callie Barkley loves animals. As a young girl, she dreamed of getting a cat or dog of her own until she discovered she was allergic to most of them. It was around this time that she realized the world was full of all kinds of critters that could use some love. She now lives with her husband and two kids in Connecticut. They share their home with exactly ten fish and a very active ant farm.

    Marsha Riti illustrated the picture book The Picky Little Witch by Elizabeth Brokamp. She lives in Austin, Texas, where she likes to take long walks, stopping frequently to pet neighborhood kitties.
