Editorial Reviews

Review

"Taback's signature illustrative style is perfect. . . . Share with kids before and after camp—newbies will be astonished at how typical Michael's experience is; seasoned campers (and their parents) will laugh all the way through." — Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Drawings, collage elements, real envelopes, and removable letters creating a work of art that readers will want to pore over. Including plenty of puns, the book has reluctant-reader appeal. . . . Showcasing Taback's colorful frenetic style and inherent humor." — School Library Journal

"Those nervous about camp will relate to Michael's hyperbolic anxieties while treasuring his father's reassurances and good humor." — Publishers Weekly

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Librarian Laura on September 1, 2012
Format: Hardcover
The idea is simple: Michael doesn't want to go to camp, but since his father had such a fun time at camp as a kid, he's forcing Michael to go. Through postcards and letters, the reader sees Michael's experiences and his change in attitude towards camp.

While the idea may be normal, the presentation of the story is not. The writing is minimal (backs of postcards and a few letters), the colors are bright, and the drawings are detailed. Young readers will enjoy pulling out the letters from the envelops and the briefness of the postcards. Older readers will enjoy the dad's humor in his postcards that play off of Michael's complaints in the previous letter.

I am glad to see this title on the 2012-2013 Bluebonnet List because I know the kids in my library will love this book. I just hope they put the little letters back in the envelop for the next reader to enjoy.

The book is really cute with the creativity and the pull outs with it. My 8 year-old enjoyed reading it.
