It’s oV to camp for Winnie: sunny days of rock climbing, cascading down slippery falls, Xoating in a cool lakeand meeting a fascinating new friend. Winnie can’t remember ever having more fun. But in the midst of the excitement, Winnie discovers how complicated life can get too as she watches one fib tumble mysteriously and rapidly to the next not-so-little lie. Readers will once again find a friend in Winifred Fletcher in this early chapter book, written with authenticity and illustrated with charming line drawings.
Jennifer Richard Jacobson's favorite camp memory is of canoeing to a river island, where she and her paddling friends built a campfire and slept out under the stars until dawn. Jennifer lives with her husband and two children in Cumberland, Maine, where they like to sing silly camp songs.
Written with a light touch and illustrated with winsome line drawings, this is a series for young readers to write home about.” Kirkus Reviews
