Booklist Review

Gr. K^-2. The best friends who first appeared in Turtle and Snake Go to Work (1999) are back and heading outdoors. The slight story follows Turtle and Snake as they pack their bags and set up a campsite. The call of an owl scares them, though, and they end up racing back to the comforts of home. There are some charming details in the bright, childlike illustrations, such as the friends' differently shaped backpacks and sleeping bags, and children will giggle as they puzzle out the words on the page. With very simple vocabulary and short sentences, this appealing Viking Easy-to-Read title is a great choice for the youngest readers. --Gillian Engberg


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-Best friends Turtle and Snake check out books from the library on camping; pack their tent, sleeping bags, and backpacks; and set off-around trees, into the brook, across the pond to the campgrounds. Later, a spooky noise (an owl's hoot) startles them and they hurry back to their best camping spot-home-where they roast marshmallows in the fireplace. A truncated version of Michael Rosen's We're Going on a Bear Hunt (McElderry, 1989), the text has a succinct liveliness about it, and the childlike primary-colored cartoons are funny and add to the book's charm. Animals in many of the pictures are reading books-an unobtrusive message for beginning readers.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA (c) Copyright 2010.
