Enter the world of Lumberjanes, created by Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis, Brooklyn A. Allen, and Noelle Stevenson, and meet a scout group like no other! At Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet's Camp for Hardcore Lady Types, five friends face their fears and fistfight fearsome monsters like three-eyed wolves, yetis, velociraptors, and the well-mannered boy's camp.
Jo, the cool-headed leader; April, the most dramatic and the smallest, but strong enough to arm wrestle a living statue’s arm off; Molly, shy, but skilled at archery and puzzles, as well as looking after her friends; Mal, punky and plucky, but beset by fears that she faces with the help of her friends, and Ripley, the youngest, most rip-roaring Lumberjane of all.
These friends give their poor camp counselor, Jen, a run for her money, and she is always shouting out exclamations you will want to look up later. Camp Director Rosie is as cool and fearless as she is mysterious, and all these characters and cut-ups come together for an adventure with laughs, suspense, romance, and roundhouses. The reading level is grades 4-6, but this is fun for every age.
