Let's Go Camping with Mr. Sillypants

Mary K. Brown, Author, M. K. Brown, Author Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers $15 (1p) ISBN 978-0-517-59773-6
Kids who giggled their way through Let's Go Swimming with Mr. Sillypants will hail the return of this bespectacled, befuddled hero. On the morning of the eponymous excursion, Mr. Sillypants oversleeps. His fellow campers have already departed, and Mr. Sillypants gets lost as he attempts to trace their footsteps through the woods. He tells himself not to panic, but to eat (""I always feel better after a sandwich and a pickle and a cookie and some hot chocolate""). The amiable fellow then takes a nap and, in a diverting, wordless tale-within-a-tale, he discovers ``a charming cottage,'' wherein he sees three sandwiches, three toothbrushes and three beds--all of varying sizes. He awakens from a brief snooze to the glares of the house's three furry residents--whom delighted youngsters will easily recognize. When Mr. Sillypants wakes up for real, he, happily, finds the other campers. Brown's refreshingly spontaneous text and droll art balance good-natured humor with a reassuring message for any child who has become separated from a group. Ages 3-7. (June)
