Pinky and his best friend Rex are going away to camp for the first time. Rex is excited about it, but Pinky definitely is not. There is just too much for him to worry about. He's certain that his pesky little sister Amanda will raid his room while he's gone and mess up all his stuffed animals. He also knows that camp counselors turn into monsters at night and eat children. And even worse, if the counselors at Camp Wackatootchee don't get you, then the alligators in the lake will. Can a letter to "Dear Arnie" help him enjoy the camp, or will Pinky have to tell his best friend that he's too scared to go? In this fifth book in the acclaimed series written by James Howe, friendship, understanding, and most of all, talking to his parents help Pinky confront his fears. This book-earnestly and heartwarmingly narrated by Christina Moore-will find a favored place in many children's and adults' bookcases.

""Easy Readers," books written for children just beginning to read, are among the most difficult books to record successfully. But leave it to seasoned reader Christina Moore to find a way! Moore overcomes the inherent textual limitations of short sentences, simple constructions and repetitive vocabulary to produce a collection of excellent audiobooks that will appeal equally to the emergent reader following along in a book and to the sibling or parent listening for pleasure. Moore's pacing and expression enhance and enliven the simple texts. Subtle vocal differentiation allows the listener to distinguish between best friends Pinky and Rex, while the exaggerated, often whiny, voice of Pinky's younger sister offers a fine counterpoint. High on emotion, the tone and emphasis in all dialogue are appropriate and authentic. Every library serving young children should clear a space for the entire Pinky and Rex audiobook collection! T.B.
