This novel is about a boy named Teddy who goes on a camping trip with his brother and Uncle. Teddy is not an outdoors kind of kid, he finds himself in the woods, sleeping on rocks, and battling raccoons, mosquitoes, and poison oak. He tries to prove he is as smart as his little brother. When they get lost in the woods they have an encounter with a skunk. It is a great read that students find interesting, adventurous and humorous.
