Alan Katz is back again with 14 terribly silly songs about camp life. The topics include smelly bunks, killer mosquitoes, impossible arts and crafts, weird water sports, and the hike from hell.

Sung to a host of familiar tunes such as Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and Rock-a-Bye Baby, these rousing, catchy camp melodies are guaranteed to elicit a few laughs, giggles and, from adults, guffaws.

'At the campfire, hot dog on a stick over the flame - it cooks up so quick. When the stick breaks, the hot dog falls in. So I just eat mustard. No wonder I'm thin!'

Now, if that didn't put a small smile on your face, perhaps this will

'Oh ... four weeks and I haven't done laundry. No soap has come close to my clothes. I look at the pile forlornly and choose what I'm wearing by ... nose!'

David Catrow's humorous illustrations complement these wacky camp songs and together they make a package most children between the ages of four and eight should find funny. Catrow and Katz collaborated on three other silly dilly books Smelly Locker, Too Much Kissing and Take Me Out of the Bathtub. If your child enjoyed any of these titles, he or she will really love this latest collection of songs!
