There are a few simple rules Daniel follows.
Rule One: never let an adult see your weakness. Daniel made that mistake and look where he ended up - summer camp.
Rule Two: never make fun of the person who feeds you, unless you like Miss Gunderson's peppery pancakes and green hamburgers.
Rule Three: stay away from girls who love Glitter Ponies. They have cooties, after all.
And Rule Four: never, ever lose your magic pencil.
But Daniel has broken all of his own rules. Now he's stuck and starving at Camp Bigfoot with the school bully as his bunkmate and an ooey-gooey girl who won't leave him alone. If all of that wasn't bad enough, his prized possession, a pencil that brings his drawings to life, has gone missing and wacky creatures are popping up all over camp.
Can Daniel survive Camp Bigfoot and find his magic pencil before it's too late?

One of my passions is finding books that 9- to 14-year-old boys will want to read. Because reading for 30 minutes a day is critical for boys to thrive, I'm always looking for books in a variety of mediums and forms that they may like. For that reason, I purchased the audio book of 'Daniel the Camp-er" and listened to it in my car over the last three weeks. I wanted to see if it was a book that would engage a boy while he was sitting in a car driving from one activity to another.
I have to say, I really liked Daniel, and I know boys ages 9 to 11 will too. Ms. Henderson captured the essence of this age group with the humor she uses and the way she has Daniel question and reflect on the world around him. Without a doubt, S.J. Henderson's 'Daniel the Camp-er' is definitely a book I will be highly recommending to parents and educators who want to get boys reading.
