Sarah Garland’s Eddie series takes on tents in this new camping adventure. Eddie and his family are off on holiday. Once they’ve packed (and re-packed) it’s a long drive to the campsite with a carpark picnic en route. When they arrive it’s dark but Eddie enjoys listening to the hooting owls. The next day starts with a campfire breakfast before a day on the beach where Eddie constructs his very own tent with some knots from his book. He makes some new friends, Max and his dog Bouncer, over a fish and chip lunch but when Bouncer goes missing later in the day, the boys work together to find him. When he’s safely tied up the family celebrate with a huge feast.
Recipes and information on knots is included in the back of the book – it sounds like great fun to make Damper bread. With lots of helpful information about camping, campfires and camp cooking as well as useful lists on what to bring this would be a great gift for any budding outdoor enthusiasts.
