School Library Journal

Gr 2-4

Philomena Wonderpen can't wait to go on the school camp for two whole days and one night. She's going to room with two of her best friends and has prepared a wonderful snack for their secret midnight feast. Plus, she's taking along her amazing magic wonderpen that allows her to draw anything, make a wish, and the drawing becomes real. Best of all, Philomena is certain she will win the most points and become the School Camp Star. Unfortunately, her midnight snack gets crushed, water floods the cabin she was supposed to share with her friends so they have to split up, and her friend Minna seems to be star-struck by the awful Sarah Sullivan who is leading in the race for star points. Even Philomena's wonderpen is failing her. Can she ever set things right? Listeners will be rooting for this very likable character. Melissa Chambers narrates this enjoyable story by Australian author Ian Bone, charmingly portraying the dynamic young heroine and providing convincing voices for the other child and adult characters. Sound effects-from cheering children to ringing bells-are somewhat overused and interrupt the narrative. Still, this is a minor annoyance in an otherwise thoroughly enjoyable presentation.-Deanna Romriell, Salt Lake City Public Library, UT
