First sentence: Up until now, becoming a Mouse Scout was the best thing that had ever happened to Violet.
Premise/plot: Camp Out is the third book in the Mouse Scouts series by Sarah Dillard. Each book seems to be focused on the scouts earning a particular badge. This third book is focused on the "camp out" badge. Violet is nervous--anxious--about the trip. The thought of sleeping outside practically terrifies her. Tigerlily, on the other hand, is excited about the trip. Other badges may panic her--but not this one.
My thoughts: If you've enjoyed the other two books in this series then there's a good chance you'll enjoy this one and any other future books. The books are predictable and safe in a comfy-cozy early reader way. There's something comforting about book series delivering exactly what you want and how you want it. Predictable is essentially exactly what you want when you're seven or eight.
I like the series. I do. I'm not the target audience. I know this. But it is always good for adults to know a little something--or a LOT even--about what books are currently being published for this age group. It's a very important stage developmentally!!!
