The Lovereading4Kids comment

A follow-up to best-selling Oh Boris! this warm-hearted and lively story captures all the excitement of an outdoor adventure. The big bear Boris and his classmates are off camping. Luckily, Boris is not only very big but also very strong which is useful for helping the little ones on a hike! And he can be very scary which is just as well when two badly behaved fox cubs turn up...Lovely illustrations bring all the characters to life.

Synopsis

Boris Goes Camping by Carrie Weston

Miss Cluck is taking her class camping. There are various mishaps along the way - the little mice find it difficult to keep up, then Maxwell drops his Teddy in the stream while they play pooh-sticks. Each time, Boris comes to the rescue - earning him praise from Miss Cluck and his classmates. Eventually the animals find a lovely spot for their tepee and they spend the afternoon decorating it before setting off to gather berries for supper. But ...when they get back to their lovely tepee, they discover that ...'Someone had scribbled on the sides. Someone had drawn a moustache on Miss Cluck's face. Someone had pulled down the sticks ...And someone was going to be in BIG trouble!' The culprits are two naughty wolf cubs and they laugh in the face of Miss Cluck's reprimands (after all, since when have wolves been scared of chickens?) but they soon lose their bravado when Boris steps in with his big bear grin. So Miss Cluck and her pupils reclaim their tent and, after an evening of songs and stories, they're ready for bed. There isn't much room in the tepee once Boris has settled down, but no one minds a bit, after all, they all have a soft, cosy place to sleep!
