CAMPING LIKE CRAZY by T. Morris Longstreth


Email this review


Keets, Stringy, Murdo and the rest of the boys that started out the summer with misfortune in the slapstick predecessor to this, Elephant Toast (1952, p.75) live through more (mis) adventures. At Camp Chesunquoik in Maine, the process of making a success out of life with the aid of Keets' find- the elephant Dot and her keeper Haru- is a zany string of escapades from publicity stunts, ball games with rivals, trouble with the local sheriff, to hunting for the periodically errant elephant. Here's post comic book fantasy-humor that will please fans. It ends with a happy arrangement of winters in Florida and summers with Keets- for Dot. Heman Fay's cartoons maintain the same vein of humor.
