With DJ in your cabin, summer camp's full of surprises.

Bad weather, bugs and boredom--DJ and the boys in Camp Lots-o-Fun's cabin six are starting to call it Camp Not-so-Fun. To make matters worse, one of the boys has it in for DJ. But DJ isn't about to let that bother him. His lively imagination and wit ensure there's never a dull moment. A bear in the woods, monsters in the lake and a hermit's ghost make for a week at summer camp that none of the boys in cabin six will soon forget.

Marilyn Helmer was born in St. John's, Newfoundland. Marilyn's stories, poems and articles have appeared in children's magazines and anthologies in Canada and the United States.

"Many young children will relate to Adventures at Camp Lots-O-Fun. The story touches on many of the fears and worries children have, especially when they are away at camp...Well-written and entertaining for a young reader. The few illustrations give the reader a clear picture about what is really happening in the story. My children and I enjoyed Adventures at Camp Lots-O-Fun. Recommended." - CM Magazine

"Helmer takes the early chapter book reader through a delightful, adventurous, imaginative, heart-warming trek on a week with the boys of Cabin Six...A story to delight the fan of the outdoors and the summer camper...An excellent recreational reading book, or a classroom read-aloud." - Resource Links

"Helmer has crafted a rollicking tale. DJ's antics will carry readers along swiftly with lots of chuckles throughout. The pictures by Mike Deas are action-filled and just a bit goofy." - Canadian Children's Book News

"Early chapter-book page-turner about the mayhem and havoc created by one overactive and imaginative bunk-mate during one week at summer camp...If you've ever been to summer camp, there will be at least one thing that sparks your memory, and if you have never been to camp, this will surely pique your interest. Boys will especially get a kick out of this book." - Puget Sound Council for Reviewing Children's Media
