This is the laugh-out-loud sequel to L. A. Campbell’s Cartboy and the Time Capsule.

Hopelessly hapless Hal Rifkind, a.k.a. Cartboy, is off to summer camp. And not just any old camp, but history camp. Campers have to learn how to churn butter, plant maize, and carry water from the stream—or they get punished for not doing their chores. What else could possibly go wrong for Cartboy? Read Hal’s journal to find out!

Filled with photos, drawings, and timelines, Hal’s journal chronicles his hilarious adventures at Camp Jamestown—where nothing has changed in 400 years.

Praise for Cartboy Goes to Camp

Praise for Cartboy and the Time Capsule

“Occasional doodles and well-placed spot photos enhance the quirky humor. Sure, this sad-sack path blazed by Jeff Kinney’s Wimpy Kid is familiar ground, but Hal treads it well, and readers will find it easy to spend time with him.” —The Horn Book

“Campbell’s debut is fast and funny and dotted with drawings, labeled pictures, and goofy timelines. Hal’s authentic voice and realistic twelve-year-old sense of humor will hook Wimpy Kid fans.” —Kirkus Reviews
