Story Mama Quick Review:

This is an adventure in nature filled with speech bubbles with a layout a bit like a comic. The adventurers go camping and hiking over several days and nights. They carry all of their equipment on their backs and get stronger every day. It is a book that celebrates nature and exploring. It has lots of text so is for confident readers or could be read aloud over several sittings with a parent.  The illustrations are filled with detail to spot. In the story, Uncle Egg has to trust and leave Clancy to retrieve a lost piece of gear. Clancy passes the independence test with flying colours.  Kids will love reading this again and again.  It is much longer than a standard picture book - 80 pages. We recommend it for ages 5-10 years
