Max, the biggest bully in first grade, just can't believe that Freddy Thresher and his best friend, Robbie, are going on a camping trip this weekend. Worse yet, Freddy's sister, Suzie, has bet him a full week's worth of chores that he'll be too much of a scaredy-cat to spend the whole night in the wild! And, even though Freddy is a little bit worried, he sure isn't going to let Suzie win a bet that involves cleaning the basement! Shark head flashlight, sleeping back, tent, and S'more supplies in tow, Freddy, Robbie, and Mr. Thresher head off to the camp grounds for a weekend of campfire fun.
But, when Freddy and Robbie stray from their firewood collecting and come across a busy beehive, the trip takes an adventurous and hilarious turn! A high-speed bee chase, a disastrous fishing contest, two spooky ghost stories, and one midnight bear visit later, Freddy will have plenty to tell Mrs. Wushy's class on Monday!
