About the Book



Woodland animals camp in a human house for a week-long vacation while the family that lives there is away in this rollicking picture book by up-and-coming talents Falatko and Chan. Full color.



Book Synopsis



Forest animals set up camp in an empty human house in this rollicking picture book by up-and-coming talents Julie Falatko and Ruth Chan.

When the humans head out to go camping, the animals settle in for a relaxing holiday of their own! Teen bear takes over the bathroom with her curling iron, the beavers prepare their fanciest recipes, and the deer kick up their feet for a dance party. What starts as a little unwinding soon escalates to a big mess, just in time for everyone to head home. . . .

Julie Falatko and Ruth Chan's quirky humors shine in this hilarious take on family trips that will have kids wondering what exactly goes on back at home when they're on vacation.
