Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Kathryn Lasky's lovable pig, last seen in Starring Lucille, has a different kind of camping adventure in Lucille Camps In, illus. by Marylin Hafner. Deemed too young to go camping with her father and older siblings, Lucille sulks until she and her mother decide to try a tenting expedition... in the living room. Hafner's whimsical watercolors present a cheerful, affectionate family portrait. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Here is a tale to cheer every kid who has been left behind and despondent when Dad takes big brother or sister camping. The flashlight Dad leaves her gives Lucille an idea. With her mother's help she sets up her bedspread over chairs for a tent inside. They roast marshmallows over the fire in the fireplace. From their sleeping bags they watch the stars through the window, while Lucille tells a story about the moon. By the time Dad and her siblings come back the next day, Lucille has drawn pictures of her own "camping in" to show them. Hafner's colored drawings create a very appealing believable Lucille. There is just enough sketchy detail in the large scenes and vignettes to show a comfortable middle-class anthropomorphic pig family at home. 2003, Arthur A. Knopf/ Random House Children's Books,
— Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-When Dad takes Lucille's older brother and sister camping, the youngest pig is left behind, and her mother tries to console her with fun projects and some homemade cookies. Refreshed from a nap, Lucille wakes up with an idea. Dragging her quilt downstairs, along with a bag of favorite toys, she and Mom make a tent of their own. Getting into the spirit, Mom proposes a picnic by the fire and, as the stars come out, the two crawl into sleeping bags and tell peaceful stories. Similar in theme to Kevin Henkes's Bailey Goes Camping (Greenwillow, 1985), this title is more fleshed out in both text and art. Lucille is full of spunk and verve and so it's only fitting that it's her idea to "camp in." The family dynamics are great-supportive while allowing for individuality. Everyone has an age-appropriate adventure and readers will recognize that even though it's hard to be left behind, it often works out for the best (no mosquitoes, marshmallows for breakfast). The vibrant pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations provide the perfect complement to the text.-Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
