Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 2-4-This is a really sweet novel in verse and a good sequel to Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie (Abrams, 2011), though it works fine as a stand-alone. It is summer, and Eleanor's grandmother is sending her to Camp Wallumwahpuck. Though excited at first, she quickly finds herself homesick, as the only camp food she can stomach are the salads and rolls, and her bunk bed is near spiderwebs. Not only that, but she is stuck in the baby swimming group. Eleanor is mortified and miserable and just wants to go home. Of course, it is not long before she finds herself making friends, taking care of an adorable goat, and learning to swim. Maybe camp is not as awful as she thought. Eleanor is a likable character, and kids will relate to her unease at being far away from her family. The ending wraps up nicely, as the story is more about how she copes with a situation that is less than ideal and does not involve Eleanor having a complete change of heart. A good purchase for collections where the first book is popular.-Elizabeth Swistock, Orange County Public Library, VAα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

Eleanor is excited to attend sleepaway camp, just like her mother before her. But once she gets there, Eleanor finds she hates the food, the insects, swimming lessons, and waking up in a lumpy sleeping bag. The free-verse text is a remarkably efficient way for readers to get to the heart of Eleanor’s concerns; fortunately, Eleanor is able to persevere and make her camp experience a positive one. This sequel to Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie (2011) is just as endearing and wise, illustrating how small triumphs can help children survive what, at the time, seems an insurmountable trial. Grades 2-4. --Kara Dean

Format: Hardcover
I admit I am not the biggest poetry fan and I'm always a little bit cautious when I read novels that are written in verse because it takes a talented writer to be able to pull it off. Being able to write in enough detail while still keeping a nice rhythm takes skill. Julie Sternberg pulls it off nicely in Like Bug Juice on a Burger.

Eleanor finds herself in a situation she has no idea how to handle. While her mother loved summer camp, Eleanor finds little to like and soon finds herself writing home with a plea to be picked up. But as she adjusts she realizes that there are some good things and while she isn't likely to ever love camp, she did have some fun after all.

I have to say this book brought back my own camp experiences with a vengeance both the good and the bad. Luckily, I always had people I knew around me so it wasn't as bad as Eleanor's experiences and in fact I always had a blast. I'm grateful for authors like Sternberg who can create stories and characters that it is so easy to relate to. Recommended.

I like this book because the girl in the book sounded like me when I went to camp. One thing the author did well was she was very enthusiastic and exaggerated a lot. My favorite part was when they all thought of a name for the new goat. My favorite character was Eleanor because she was funny and serious at the same time. I would recommend this book because it always gets more exciting.

I like how she didn't like the camp because that thought my sister that good things can happen with boring places (if they are to other people and stuff)
