“This visual and verbal delight brings to life the emotional ups and downs of three weeks at sleep-away camp. Dilly, who was convinced she would love camp, finds that its not exactly as she’d envisioned. Eventually, her interest in frogs helps her to overcome the rough times and leads to new friends and the creation of a frog club. . . While kids about to attend summer camp might be made nervous by reading Dillys diary, they will ultimately be swept away by the childs pervasive sense of enjoyment and adventure. For experienced campers, this offering will bring back their own best and worst memories.”
