Despite all attempts to avoid reading and extra work, Charlie Joe Jackson finds himself in a terrible dream he can't wake up from: Camp Rituhbukkee (pronounced "read-a-bookie") a place filled with grammar workshops, Read-a-Ramas, and kids who actually like reading. But Charlie Joe is determined to convince the entire camp to hate reading and writing one genius at a time.
Tommy Greenwald's "Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Summer Vacation" is another fun installment in the life of a reluctant reader.
