Lovely nature is all around, friends from Room 26 are there–including Humphrey!–and camp days are full of exciting activities. Og has lots of new responsibilities, like watching out for Humphrey, helping his fellow campers adjust to being away from home, and encouraging everyone to always try their best. But when one camper lets Og loose at the lake, he is in a tough spot. The lake sure does feel like home, but so does his tank. Plus his human friends need him–and so does Humphrey. Good thing Og has experience in the wild because–BING-BANG-BOING!–this is going to be one hopping summer! Og’s frog’s-eye view of summer camp is silly, caring, and adventurous–the perfect companion to Summer According to Humphrey.

Series:  Camp Average

A group of 11-year-olds arrives to spend six weeks playing sports at Camp Avalon–which they affectionately call Camp Average because they never win at any sport. And that’s the way they like it. But this summer, new camp director Winston–who hates losing–has some hyper-competitive ideas about how to improve their performance, whether they want to or not! Led by main character Mack and his friend Andre, the boys of Cabin 10 decide to reclaim their summer and revolt by losing spectacularly at every game they play, and especially at the big baseball tournament coming up with three nearby camps. In a story full of plotting, planning and plenty of push-ups, it’s a full-court press on losing for the campers, strategic play-by-play for the camp director, and great teamwork on all sides. Who will come out on top? The first book in the new Camp Average series is a smart, funny summer read featuring a diverse group of realistic characters and a winning storyline.
