The Infamous Ratsos Camp Out (Infamous Ratsos #4)

by Kara Lareau (Author) Matt Myers (Illustrator)

Reading Level: 2nd − 3rd Grade
Series: Infamous Ratsos

Louie and Ralphie discover that camping is not easy -- especially since Scoutmaster Grandpa Ratso doesn't think they should ask for help -- in the latest adventure in the Infamous Ratsos series.

Ralphie and Louie Ratso and the rest of the Big City Scouts are leaving the city to go camping for the first time. And they have a special guide: Grandpa Ratso! He was Scoutmaster when Ralphie and Louie's dad, Big Lou, was a kid. Grandpa teaches everyone the Scouts motto he still remembers, which says that Big City Scouts are always able to solve problems without asking for help. But the Scouts soon find that figuring out how to pitch a tent, make a fire, and find their way through the woods is tough to do by themselves. In fact, not asking for help isn't working at all! Luckily for the Scouts, someone unexpected comes along to set them all straight about what the motto really says: Scouts have the courage to ask for help and work together.
