Summer is a great time for children to spend reading chapter books, and Rosco’s summer camp adventure, Rosco the Rascal Goes to Camp, is a perfect fit. The book’s cover has also just been re-illustrated (July 2016), and I think you’ll find the new cover really great – I sure do. I’m actually having all my books’ covers redone over the next few months by artist Josh Addessi, (while keeping the interior illustrations by Ros Webb), and this is the first one to be finished.
Summary: Ten-year-old James and his seven-year-old sister Mandy are off to summer camp with their loyal German shepherd, Rosco. While Mandy struggles with homesickness, James’s week is threatened by a prank-playing bunkmate’s antics. But during an unexpected thunderstorm in a game of capture-the-flag, the prankster finds himself lost and alone deep inside the forest. Rosco must play the hero and save the boy but not before he and James teach him a hard-earned lesson about friendship. Wholesome, adventurous, outdoor fun, this Rosco the Rascal tale brings the magic of summer camp to life. *Recommended for ages 6-10 *Grade level K-4th *136 pages *17 black and white illustrations.
