KIRKUS REVIEW

A highly successful attempt to capture the splash, sun and days-without-end exhilaration of a wonderful camping summer. The Brown family -- Mother and Dad, Grampa and Danny and Carrie --set out for a state park on Wisconsin's ""thumb"" for a camping trip and cherry picking for Mother and Dad, Danny hoped he could do everything in the travel folder, learn to swim and have a rubber raft. How Danny learned to swim and earned enough money for the rubber raft makes a satisfactory story, but the camping doings -- tents, meals out of doors, fishing and extras such as cherry picking, swimming lessons and ""rafting"" -- these all add up to a holiday treat.
