Release Day!

Lionel Goes to Camp

Lionel Goes to Camp by Paul R. Hewlett
Series: Lionel's Grand Adventure #3
Publisher: Shoe Shine Publishing, Inc. on June 4, 2015

Lionel is dying to go to summer camp to try to learn more about his dad. But did his mom even sign him up, or is the joke on him waiting for a letter that will never come? Lionel has never met his dad, and his mom never talks about him, but Lionel’s magical Three-Toed-Potbellied Walbaun foot has him convinced the answers are at Camp Bonine.

Lionel does get his letter during a disastrous trip to the Post Office; he’s going to camp! His excitement for camp is quickly doused when he learns he’s rooming with the biggest bully in school—Tad Winters. After being tripped, pranked, and set up by Tad, Lionel finds himself stuck doing dishes with Martha the kitchen lady. Lionel finally gets his chance to get even when the day of the big scavenger hunt arrives. The boy and girl winners get to spend the day at Lake Yellowhorn .

Will Carrie win for the girls? Will Lionel beat Tad and get to go with her? Lionel will have to endure Martha, wander through the desert in the old west, find his way through the woods, escape bad guys, and collect all the items before everyone else if he wants a chance to spend the day with Carrie at Lake Yellowhorn, survive summer camp, and find out the mystery of his dad. Luckily, Lionel has his magical charm to help him out, or will it land Lionel in a mess-and-a-half he can’t get out of?

My thoughts about Lionel Goes to Camp ~~

I just love Lionel. He is a great kid who doesn't want much out of life but things just seem to happen to him. Oh my, Lionel and his adventures. This time he just wants to go to camp to see if he can find out more about his dad, the dad he has never known. He does know that his dad when to this camp and he's hoping this adventure will give him some answers. 

Of course, he takes along his magical Three-Toed-Potbellied Walbaun foot which can grant him wishes, of a sort. But look out! Be careful what you wish for, Lionel! It is so comical to see how the Walbaun foot interperets his wishes and the prediciments Lionel gets thrown into.

And what kid doesn't dream of going to camp? The reader gets to experience everything Lionel goes through, the good stuff and the not so good stuff. And it's one thing after the other. But Lionel, being the great kid that he is, just keeps doing the right thing, even if sometimes that gets him in trouble.  

I loved taking this adventure with Lionel and hope we can do it again soon. 

This book is geared towards age level 6-12, grade level K-3. As I was reading it, I kept thinking of the young readers in my life and I know they are going to love it.
