About the Book

Monster proves he’s not that great in the great outdoors in this heartwarming tale of camping and friendship by New York Times bestselling author Deborah Underwood.

It takes a little convincing, but with the promise of food, Monster decides to join Mouse on a camping trip. Things quickly go awry when Mouse takes off to explore, because, well, Monster gets hungry. He starts with just a little snack—the lantern. And the sleeping bags are hard to resist. Then the tent . . .

Stranded in the wild with no supplies, what are a monster and a mouse to do?
Join these friends on an unforgettable camping trip, perfect for reading snuggled in a sleeping bag or curled on a couch. 

Critical Praise

"The slapstick humor [comes] through loud and clear. This is one camping trip sure to live up to expectations."--Kirkus   "Underwood’s (Interstellar Cinderella, 2015) story fits nicely among others that use humor to debunk fears or promote friendly monsters, such as Gianna Marino’s Night Animals (2015) and Nicholas John Frith’s AWerewolf Named Oliver James (2018)."--Booklist   "Older kids will enjoy reading this title to younger siblings, if they can curb their own giggles. Use this story to get kids excited about a first camping trip—they’ll be looking eagerly for friendly orange and purple monsters who like to eat sleeping bags."--Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books   "Lovers of the great outdoors and those with a camping aversion will root for these friends. Perfect for sharing one-on-one around the campfire or in a camping-themed storytime."--School Library Journal
