THE GREAT SUMMER CAMP CATASTROPHE

Age Range: 7 - 10

Pub Date: May 1st, 1992
ISBN: 0-8037-1106-9
Publisher: Dial

 Further adventures of Merciless Marvin the Magnificent and his gang, three mice who live in Macy's toy department but here suddenly find themselves wrapped up with a care package of goodies and shipped to a camp in Vermont. These city mice manage to cope with the rigors of life in the wild--they outrun a hungry owl, outwit the camp dog, even learn to canoe and water-ski; at summer's end, they cleverly engineer a return to New York. Lighthearted b&w drawings capture the action's high spots. Fans of the trio's earlier adventures (The Great Christmas Kidnapping Caper, 1975, etc.) will find this amusing romp perfectly consistent in tone and style with its award- winning predecessors. (Fiction. 7-10)
