Stella and Roy Go Camping

by

Stella and Roy Go Camping Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

During their camping trip, Roy continually tries to find evidence of bears in the animal tracks around them, only to be contradicted by his sister Stella, but then one night a bear really does appear.

Synopsis:

The engaging sister-and-brother duo from the highly acclaimed Stella & Roy are back for a second outing that will delight young readers. This time Stella and Roy are camping with their mother, and Roy really hopes to see a bear. Every time he thinks he sees bear tracks, new reader Stella is pleased to say, "Wrong, Roy, " and to look in her book of animal tracks for ones that match the prints. There are coyote tracks and marmot tracks and raccoon tracks and lots of other animal tracks — but, to Roy's chagrin, no bear tracks.

At night, however, things change. Lying awake in his sleeping bag, Roy hears a clunking, rolling sound. Could it be the black plastic bear barrel, into which all leftovers have been tightly shut? Who or what is out there?

Ashley Wolff's high-spirited story gives equal weight to the pleasures of reading that Stella has recently discovered and to the rewards of persistence that younger brother Roy enjoys. Wolff's distinctive hand-tinted linocuts beautifully render the splendors of an outdoor hike, as well as the spookiness of a shadowed night. Readers will enjoy identifying tracks along with Stella and Roy, and they will thrill with Roy when he glimpses the nighttime visitor.

Synopsis:

This is a reprint of the childrens classic about a family backpack trip in Yosemite.
