Camping Chaos

by L. M. Nicodemo

illustrated by Graham Ross

A wasp sting leaves Max hopping up and down with the Super Fidgets and he devises a counting game to distract himself.

Meet Maximus Todd! He's the kid who can't sit still. Max and his friends are on a camping trip at Camp Friendly Pines when he's stung by a wasp. Max gets a case of the Super Fidgets and devises a counting game to distract himself. If he loses, he will have to forfeit his campfire treats!

It's not easy being a kid. And Max discovers that his games don't always work out the way he wants them to. But no matter what, he has the love and understanding of his friends.
