Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3–Although Sweet Briar Skunk makes friends easily, Petal Porcupine doesn't fare as well at day camp. The other youngsters make fun of her, and this worries Sweet Briar, who knows what it feels like to be left out. Within the first week, she extends a hand of friendship to Petal, who then becomes part of the group. This kind act makes the camping experience all the better. The watercolor paintings of the animal characters work well with the story, showing facial expressions that match the mood. Pair this title with James Ziefert's Harry Goes to Day Camp (Penguin, 1994), Mercer Mayer's A Day at Camp (School Specialty, 2003), and Allan Sherman and Lou Busch's Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah (Dutton, 2004) for a well-rounded look at summertime fun.– Kathleen Simonetta, Indian Trails Public Library District, Wheeling, IL

From Booklist

K-Gr. 2. The small, odorous female skunk that survived being shunned in Sweet Briar Goes to School (2003) returns in a summer day-camp experience. This time it's Petal the porcupine who is ostracized. Sweet Briar comes to her rescue, remembering how it felt to be the only one of her kind. Watercolor illustrations of the appealing animals highlight their particular characteristics, and the camp setting is the perfect venue to convey the message: be yourself. The ending here is less dramatic than in the first story, but any child who has been chosen last or suffered teasing will understand and relate to Sweet Briar's feelings and Petal's predicament.

More About the Author

My life is a series of lessons and moments that see me to the next lessons and moments. Some moments are sweet, some scary, some a blur gone too fast and forever missed. I write for children because all of these steps started there, in childhood, and that sense of wonder, keen curiosity, and the ability to see things much kinder and more magical than they actually were, fades as time passes and years and experience claim your naivety. For me it is a feeling only rekindled when I am creating books, stories and poetry.

My children, family and friends are a great inspiration to me, and the support of my readers is a tremendous honor. It is always my desire to entertain children and encourage them to think about and explore their world, and the worlds beyond, embrace creativity, and love learning for the duration of their life. Knowledge comes through words, so for me literacy is the foundation of education, and it bears the fruit of intelligent and empathetic citizens of this world and humanity.
