Ellie McDoodle Have Pen, Will Travel by Ruth McNally Barshaw


Ellie and her little brother have to stay with their aunt and uncle for a whole week. This includes going camping (not real camping in a tent, but fake camping in a cabin) with her cousins she does not like. Ellie takes her sketchbook to write down everything that happens during her miserable week. She falls into a swamp, makes new friends, gets lost in the woods, and has many other adventures. This was a fun story written like a graphic novel mixed with a diary. The pictures she draws and the words she uses to describe her experiences are very hilarious. This is a book I would strongly recommend!
