Pinky and his best friend Rex are going away to camp for the first time. Rex is excited about it, but Pinky definitely is not. There is just too much for him to worry about. He’s certain that his pesky little sister Amanda will raid his room while he’s gone and mess up all his stuffed animals. He also knows that camp counselors turn into monsters at night and eat children. And even worse, if the counselors at Camp Wackatootchee don’t get you, then the alligators in the lake will.
Can a letter to “Dear Arnie” help him enjoy the camp, or will Pinky have to tell his best friend that he’s too scared to go? In this fifth book in the acclaimed series written by James Howe, friendship, understanding, and most of all, talking to his parents help Pinky confront his fears. This book—earnestly and heartwarmingly narrated by Christina Moore—will find a favored place in many children’s and adults’ libraries.
