A Caldecott Honor book, this title follows the adventures of James and Eamon as they visit Eamon's grandparents while attending Nature Camp during the day. The book's humor comes from the interaction of the words and the pictures, which often communicate different ideas, like how James arrives with 'just a couple of his belongings,' but we can see an enormous pile of overflowing boxes behind him. Pick this title for an amusing story of a week of camp and play, with bright, relaxed illustrations.
