Description

 

Gordon Korman’s uproarious, outrageous, and all-too-familiar summer camp adventure is BACK in this 40th anniversary edition!

 

Rudy Miller really isn’t into the whole camping thing. So when his parents send him to Camp Algonkian “for his own good” all he wants to do is go home.

Rudy teams up with his cabin-mate Mike for a series of carefully planned — yet hilariously bungled — escape attempts. Unfortunately, their counsellor (and nemesis) Chip is as determined to keep them there as they are to get away.

Rudy and Mike spend their days plotting, playing chess, and working off punishments for their failed escapes

Hmmm, maybe it isn’t such a bad way to spend the summer after all . . .
