Publisher Comments:

What could be more fun than a camping trip with a good friend?

When that friend is T. Rex!

It's important to set a few wilderness safety guidelines first... like making sure he stays on the trail. And does not disturb the local wildlife. And knows how to build a safe campfire. But sometimes dinosaurs have a different way of doing things, and that's why it's best to be prepared... for anything!

Following in the extremely large and funny footsteps of Tea Rex, Camp Rex is for anyone who loves to roast a marshmallow or two around the campfire... or the whole bag at once!

Review:

"The big green tyrannosaurus rex from Caldecott Honor artist Idle's Tea Rex has some prehistoric friends with him this time around, and they're all going camping. The decorum-minded girl from the previous book remains in charge — with her oversize taupe hat, kerchief, and tailored jacket, she's channeling some serious Juliette Gordon Low — and her guidelines and instructions go hilariously awry. 'Refrain from disturbing the natural landscape,' she says as T. rex presents a beehive to the group, forcing them into the lake to escape the angry swarm ('There's nothing more refreshing than a dip in a mountain lake'). Once again, the deadpan writing and careful compositions work in tandem for maximum comic impact. Ages 3 – 5. Agent: Lori Nowicki, Painted Words." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
