It’s oV to camp for Winnie: sunny days of rock climbing, cascading down slippery falls, Xoating in a cool lake—and meeting a fascinating new friend. Winnie can’t remember ever having more fun. But in the midst of the excitement, Winnie discovers how complicated life can get too as she watches one fib tumble mysteriously and rapidly to the next not-so-little lie. Readers will once again find a friend in Winifred Fletcher in this early chapter book, written with authenticity and illustrated with charming line drawings.
