Welcome to Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s Camp for Hardcore Lady Types. The five scouts of Roanoke cabin—Jo, April, Molly, Mal, and Ripley—love their summers at camp. They get to hang out with their best friends, earn Lumberjane scout badges, annoy their no-nonsense counsellor Jen . . . and go on supernatural adventures. That last one? A pretty normal occurrence at Miss Qiunzella’s, where the woods contain endless mysteries.
As the camp gears up for the big Galaxy Wars competition, Jo and the gang get some help from an unexpected visitor—a Moon Pirate!
I love the Lumberjanes! I enjoy these books much more than the graphic novels because they take longer to read.
This story is a great follow up to the first novel. But it is hard to follow the stinky unicorns from the first story. This one had a bit too many references to space for me, though it was pretty entertaining. The tasks that the Lumberjanes had to do were all space related, and it ended with a Moon Pirate mouse visiting the planet! You never know what you’re going to get at the camp!
I wish there were more illustrations. I love the pictures of the girls, which really tie the novel into the graphic novels. Also, I keep getting some of the girls mixed up in my head, like April and Molly, so seeing their pictures often would have helped me keep track of the girls.
I really enjoyed this book! It’s must read for fans of the Lumberjanes!
