Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
It is time for the big weekend camping adventure with their Dads, and Pinky and Rex are really excited. Those rain clouds in the sky look ominous, and soon it begins to rain. But the Dads are resourceful, and the great outdoor weekend becomes a great indoor weekend with a visit to a cavern, reptile museum, puppet maker's studio, train museum, indoor miniature golf course and even a "camp in." Best of all, Pinky and Rex agree, was spending time with their Dads. Others in the series include Pinky and Rex, Pinky and Rex and the Bully, Pinky and Rex and the Mean Old Witch, Pinky and Rex and the New Baby, Pinky and Rex and the Spelling Bee, Pinky and Rex Get Married, and Pinky and Rex Go to Camp.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 1-The seventh in the series about two best friends. While on a weekend camping trip, Pinky and his father and Rex and her father refuse to let their spirits be dampened by the nonstop rain. They explore a cavern, and later set up camp-tent and all-in a motel room. Subsequent plans take the four friends to a puppet-maker's studio, a reptile museum, a train museum, and, finally, to a miniature-golf course. Sweet's watercolor illustrations complement the text and show readers that these two children and their families are just ordinary people who know how to have fun in spite of the weather and enjoy being together. The universality of the adventures and the design of the book make this title attractive to beginning readers.-Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, IA

Meet the Author

James Howe is the author of more than ninety books for young readers, including the modern classic Bunnicula and its highly popular sequels. In 2001, Howe published The Misfits, the story of four outcast seventh-graders who try to end name-calling in their school. The Misfits is now widely read and studied in middle schools throughout the country, and was the inspiration for the national movement known as No Name-Calling Week (NoNameCallingWeek.org), an event observed by thousands of middle and elementary schools annually. There are three companion novels to The Misfits: Totally Joe (2005), Addie on the Inside (2011), and Also Known as Elvis (2014). Howe’s many other books for children from preschool through teens frequently deal with the acceptance of difference and being true to oneself. Visit him online at JamesHowe.com.
