Bob and Joss return for another hilarious adventure as they hike in circles through the woods (without a clue about where they are going)!

From dynamic author Peter McCleery and esteemed children’s book illustrator Vin Vogel comes a fun, rib-tickling escapade where this unmatched pair of best buds climb trees, get itchy bites from bugs, and hike a never-ending trail to find their way back to their camp site. Full of bold illustrations and clever one-liners, Bob and Joss Take a Hike! is sure to have young readers laughing along.

“Camping is boring,” said Joss. “Let’s do something.”

“Okay,” said Bob. “But whatever you do, don’t forget the map.”

“I won’t forget the map,” said Joss.

They forget the map.
