Book Review: Revenge of the Happy Campers by Jennifer Ziegler

Revenge of the Happy CampersBy Awnali Mills

Triplets Dawn, Darby and Delaney are on spring break, and Aunt Jane has taken them camping.  They’ve never been camping before, and they have definite mixed feelings about the experience.  They want to be happy for Aunt Jane’s sake, but stuff keeps happening that’s not, well, happy.  Then, they meet the three boys at the next campsite and suddenly find themselves in a competition to prove which set of siblings are the better campers.  Will the siblings pull together to win, or will everything fall apart?

I thought this book looked funny, and it does have some funny parts, but it’s mainly about taking care of each other, and compromise.  It also has some important things to say about leadership, and how leading isn’t about power so much as compromise and doing what’s best for the group.  This is the third book in the Brewster Triplets series.  I haven’t read the other two, but would be happy to recommend the series to children who like stories about families and sisters.  For grades 3-5.
