Daniel the Camp-er (Daniel the Draw-er Book 2) by S.J. Henderson is a fun read for children that captures the voice of a nine year old beautifully. The author looks at the world through the eyes of Daniel whose life is filled with adventures, excitement, and misadventures. The change happens with Daniel going for a summer camp and taking his magic pencil along. His pictures drawn with the magic pencil have their own uniqueness and capture the attention of the other children at the camp. The pencil goes missing and readers go on a grand adventure with the characters in the book to search for the missing pencil.
The book is enjoyable with the perfect camp setting, humor, adventure and fun. The story is imaginative and refreshingly original and will make readers laugh and giggle. This heartwarming story of friendships, adventures and laughs will definitely make a good bedtime storybook and is also ideal for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. Daniel's world is dreamy and the wonderful characters in the story make it entertaining for all kids. It's interesting to meet Daniel's friends and watch him solving the problems in his life. The camp, the putrid lake, a bunk mate bully, spiders, bad food, and the disappearance of the magic pencil make the story engaging, interactive and memorable. It's a perfect adventure story for children and its many layers will keep them glued till the very end.
