Gone Camping: A Novel in Verse
by Tamera Will Wissinger / Illustrated by Matthew Cordell

Lily and Sam are ready to go camping and explore the great outdoors. But then, Lucy starts to think about nighttime. What if something crawls in their tent? Will we hear scary night noises?

Wissinger shares a novel in verse filled with unique poetic forms. Start out with “Going Camping,” a dramatic poem for two and get excited about camp- ing! Explore “If A Critter Creeps In” a scary, smelly what-if poem or “Cannon Ball!’ a splashing fun concrete poem. Wissinger’s poems capture a wonderful variety of camping adventures! Cordell’s black and white illustrations provide a fun look into Lucy and Sam’s campground experiences and outdoor noises. Provisioning for poetry, poetry techniques and poetic forms and stanza patterns are included in the back of the book. Try a recipe poem this summer—what ingredients do you need to go camping?
