What's A Campfire Tale About

Publisher Summary

“Ever been stuck with a friend who’s totally uncool—and worried that it will rub off on you?

Welcome to Camp Wildwood! It’s Dragon’s first day, and his buddy would LIKE to show him a good time. But Dragon doesn’t seem to fit in with the boys and girls. He overturns the boat, ruins the puppet show, and even sets the tent on fire. Then, just as his buddy is about to give up, Dragon comes through in a pinch. This sweet, funny picture book teaches an important lesson about the true meaning of friendship—and in accepting the strengths and weaknesses of others.”

4.0 / 7.0

The illustrations in this book are so fun! When Dragon is new to camp, one little camper decides to be his buddy to help him and be their friend, but ends up being a little frustrated with Dragon. The story ends with a bunch of happy campers, but I thought the storyline was lacking a bit.
