Synopsis- Lionel Snodgrass was excited to be going to camp for the first time. His father went to the camp once, and Lionel wants to be more like him. All was going well, until he finds that one of his roommates is Tad, the biggest bully in the school. Now Lionel is just going to try to avoid Tad. How will he have a good camp now?
What I Thought- This was a nice book. I really like the series. [See my review of Book 1 HERE!] Lionel is a good kid, and you feel sorry for him as he carries on being a nice kid as people keep being horrible to him. It’s great how Lionel is trying to follow his missing father’s footsteps. I like the illustrations throughout the book. They are nice and funny. Mr. Hewlett’s writing style really goes with the book and is great for his audience. You get the feeling of a non-perfect kid trying his best to be a good person. I think kids will enjoy this series.
