Ellie McDoodle: Have Pen, Will Travel

by

Ellie McDoodle: Have Pen, Will Travel Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ellie McDougal (better known to her friends as Ellie McDoodle because she loves to draw) is a nearly-twelve-year-old prisoner . . . of her aunt, uncle, three annoying cousins, and her baby brother, Ben-Ben. Sentenced to a week-long camping trip with them while her parents are out of town, Ellie is absolutely, positively determined to hate every single minute of the experience. Thank goodness she at least has her sketch journal, in which she records all the excruciating (and okay, very funny) details. Mosquito bites and trips to the Fred Moose museum she can handle. But how will she keep her journal from falling into Er-ick the Enemy's hands? And what will happen when--gasp--she actually starts having fun? Part graphic novel, part confessional journal, part wilderness survival guide, Ellie's story is a treat for young campers, vacationers, or anyone looking for a great summer read.

Synopsis:

Ellie captures all the excruciating and funny details of a dreaded camping trip in her secret journal. Complete with games, songs, weird facts, and more, Ellie's sketch diary soon reveals she's actually having fun! Perfect for sleep-away campers, vacationers, and any kid looking for a great summer read.

"Reminiscent of Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid… Humorous and realistic." --SLJ on Ellie McDoodle New Kid in School

Synopsis:

When Ellie's family moves to a new town, she's sure she won't fit in. Nobody else likes to read as much as she does, the other kids tease her, and even the teachers can't seem to get her name right. But when the students need someone to help them rally against unfair lunch lines, it's Ellie to the rescue! And if shorter lines and better food prevail, can friendship be far behind?

Just in time for the back to school season, Ellie McDoodle takes pen in hand again as she chronicles the woes—and the happy surprises—of being a new kid. Chock-full of cartoons, diagrams, lists, games, and plenty of witty asides, this charming follow up to Ellie McDoodle: Have Pen,Will Travel will ease the new kid blues-and perhaps inspire some creative doodling, too.
