TAMMY CAMPS OUT by Elizabeth Baker

Email this review


Beautiful woodsy wash sketches in black and white convey all the verdure of forest paths as the reader joins Tammy's family for a camping trip. Tammy is chagrined that her brother Terry always knows the better way to do things out-of-doors. Trail blazing, fire-building, cairns, were all old stuff to him. But when a landslide in the river bed canyon cuts the children off from their family, Tammy had her chance to shine. Camping is pretty nearly a universal experience in one form or another, and Beth Krush has made it most attractive in her superb illustrations.
