Review: My EPIC Dad Takes Us Camping

Dad is an adventurer and wants to go camping. The kids would rather glamping, but instead they get My EPIC Dad Takes Us Camping.

It turns out there are a few problems on the trip. Ants, bees, spiders, leeches, rats, mud crabs ... and a wild boar! Not to forget a snake and a fox. 

What Dad hoped for, a pleasant camping trip, turns out to be an unfortunate lesson in what to look out for and what not to do. 

Poor Dad probably won't be planning any more expeditions in a hurry, although the kids think it was a major success.

Author and podcaster, Dani Vee's rhyming text shares the story of a nightmare camping trip in a fun way. Kids will be laughing throughout.

Marina Verola's illustrations are lively, bright and entertaining, bringing the family, and all the animals and escapades to life. The endpapers are a fun map with a trail to follow, too.

My EPIC Dad Takes Us Camping is one of a six-part picture book series about a Dad who loves being involved but has some epic adventures and misadventures. Look out for them all!
