Publisher Comments:

Smelly bunks! Attacking mosquitoes! Impossible arts and crafts, oh my! Bestselling team and authorities on all things seriously silly Alan Katz and David Catrow hike their hilarity out to summer camp to transform another set of familiar tunes into wildly funny songs for kids and counselors to croon. With song parodies such as and#8220;This Whole Bunk Is Very Clutteredand#8221; (to the tune of and#8220;The Battle Hymn of the Republicand#8221;), and#8220;Somebody Send Me Home Now!and#8221; (to the tune of and#8220;Skip to My Louand#8221;), and and#8220;Trying Out for the Camp Showand#8221; (to the tune of and#8220;Take Me Out to the Ballgameand#8221;), this collection guarantees giggles will be packed in every camperand#8217;s care package!

Review:

"With grim and gruesome verses set to tunes like 'On Top of Old Smokey' and 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star,' Katz and Catrow address summer camp hazards in their latest 'silly dilly' collection. In a riff on 'Skip to My Lou,' the 'mystery goo' served at lunch has one camper chanting 'Skip, skip, skip every meal'; another camper has bad luck during arts and crafts time, while playing with the sound effects of 'Old MacDonald' ('With a saw, saw here,/ and a drill, drill there;/ here a bang, there a bang — / this thing will not hang hang'). Camp-wary readers may shudder at some of the fearsome scenarios, but those who gleefully hop on the bus each summer should devour the hyperbolic comedy. Ages 4 — 8. (May)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
