Scout Babymouse is ready to lead her troops through the rough and dense forest. She's ready to teach them survival skills like starting a fire and what forest foods are safe to eat. Or not.
When she arrives at Camp Wild Whiskers and is so excited and worried. Her number one worry: did she pack enough cupcakes? When she gets her cabin number she's so excited and runs to it to meet her fellow cabin mates and pick a bed. But the homecoming is less that welcoming. The only bed for her is at the tippy-top. The cabin leader tells everyone of the rules - and that each cabin will be rewarded points for good habits: making the beds, keeping clean, sweeping, etc. And they will also lose points if they don't do their chores or certain activities. This is proving hard for Babymouse, who on the first night loses 2 points for spilling a drink.
As the week progresses, Babymouse is having a hard time. She keeps losing points and her cabin is getting very mad at her. Late in the week she calls her parents and tells them she wants to come home. Can Babymouse tough it out for the next week and make friends?
This was a cute little book, but I still like Babymouse: Heartbreaker more. My favorite part of this book though, is when Babymouse scares Big Foot away with her un-straight whiskers! Poor Babymouse.
