I enjoyed this story with all the characters within. The main character was Isabel.

Isabel and her friend Zoe are excited to be going to summer camp. They are hopeful that they can sleep out side there. But they find out that it's only a camp during the day. Isabel is not happy and want to have her own summer camp out back in her yard. Isabel's mother said it was okay but she and her friend can not make much work for the nanny. Isabel did something during the summer that she is hiding.

This was a fun story to read. It had action ,adventure and surprises throughout. It was a bit sad at parts throughout. But there were giggles within too. The illustrations went well with the story and were colorful.

I received a complimentary copy via Netgalley. This is my honest unbiased opinions.

Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for sending me an e-copy for early review!

Izzy and her friend head to summer day camp, but it's not quite what they think. So, they decide to have summer camp at home! Izzy, her nanny, her friend, and her dog all plan to have the best fun summer camp ever. However, her neighbor is a bit of a grump, which sours things!

This title was super adorable, fun, and perfect for summer time! I laughed out loud at some of the illustrations, especially the ones with Izzy's giant eyebrows! Her friendship with her neighbor was super cute, and it brought a tear to my eye seeing them get close. I'd recommend this book to many early readers, especially those that are looking for a funny book!

Thank you so much to Kids Can Press and Netgalley for the ebook to read and review.

Izzy and Zoë go to a day camp but it isn’t as fun as they wanted, so Izzy draws big black eyebrows on with a permanent marker. So they stop going to camp and plan their very own. Zoë gets sick so Izzy starts talking to Mr. Entwistle next door and the two become friends and have a fun time at camp.

This was cute, the girls were very interesting and oddball in their personality. Izzy was a very curious girl and very assertive with what she wanted and what she was doing. I think that the focus on the eyes brows was a little bit much, but I do get that it was a big premise to the story. I liked the fun they were having and the activities they’d planned for camp and how she came up with a separate plan after Zoë had to stay home.

I adored the connection and relationship that Izzy builds with Mr. Entwistle next door, he was a lonely old man and she found a way to bring him back to life, to solve his problems and make him feel like family and like he was important which was honestly so super adorable.

The illustrations within this book were also so adorable and I loved seeing how Izzy was drawn and her cuteness and mischievous events shown on the pages. They really added to the story and I loved her facial expressions and her glasses progression that were shown in them.

This was a really cute and fun, easy to read book. I really liked that Izzy and Mr. Entwistle both had things to overcome and things they both needed to learn and they were able to help each other. It was really sweet. If you are a fan of the Ivy and Bean series or Ramona series I think this is the perfect book for you, it has the same feel and same type of funny mischievous protagonist. You never know what she’s going to get up too, but it’s always a fun read.

Izzy is excited for summer and camp. However, she and Zoe soon realize that there is no camping at camp and there are lots of rules they don’t like. Instead, they want to create their own camp.

I wish there had been more Rollo, the dog, in the story. If you like the previous ones in this story though, you’ll like this one.

An early-read chapter book for the littles. I absolutely love the cover of the book and the illustrations inside are just as colorful. There is a meaningful message that is good for any child to learn.

This is the perfect Summer holiday for kids to read with their friends or parents. Izzy is a likable character and the way she builds a friendship with the grumpy next door neighbor is lovely.
I found this book really funny and it's sure to make kids laugh; especially when Izzy decides to draw big eyebrows on in permanent marker! A lovely read.

What to do when you don't enjoy your first day of summer camp? Make your own "at home version"!

An early reader chapter book for youngsters. Even though the girls were a wee bit of troublemakers at camp, she gets points for befriending the neighbor.

Very enjoyable. Great pictures illustrated throughout the book. Caroline Adderson is the author and Kelly Collier is the illustrator.

My 6 or 7 year old niece visits in a couple weeks. Depending on schedules, I'm anxious to see which books interest her.

Thank you to NetGalley for the opportunity to read the advance review copy in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to publisher Kids Can Press for approving my NetGalley request to read the advance review copy.

Thank you to NetGalley, along with the publisher for the eARC . This is a cute beginner chapter book- there are illustrations throughout the book to keep readers engaged. This would be a good book for a child who is a little beyond the typical picture book, but not yet ready for long chapter books.
