Smelly bunks! Attacking mosquitoes! Impossible arts and crafts, oh my! Bestselling team and authorities on all things seriously silly Alan Katz and David Catrow hike their hilarity out to summer camp to transform another set of familiar tunes into wildly funny songs for kids and counselors to croon. With song parodies such as “This Whole Bunk Is Very Cluttered” (to the tune of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”), “Somebody Send Me Home Now!” (to the tune of “Skip to My Lou”), and “Trying Out for the Camp Show” (to the tune of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame”), this collection guarantees giggles will be packed in every camper’s care package!
