About this title

Synopsis:

The brother-sister pairs who arrive for the first season at Camp Happy Harmony are almost too busy fighting with each other to notice how strange the camp really is. But their tune changes as they take in the bizarre songs and uniforms, the chores they're expected to perform(like renovating buildings and cleaning septic lines), and the vile and potentially poisonous food served in the Wisteria Cafeteria. For people who claim to repair disharmonious sibling relationships, the Harmony family singers-six over-the-hill entertainers-seem far too busy arguing among themselves to do much good for the campers. Oh, and meanwhile, someone is trying to murder camp postmaster Lyle Splink, the only normal adult around.

For their own protection, the campers must put aside their sibling discord long enough to solve a diabolically amusing mystery and bring the villainous Harmonys to justice. Told in letters, secret notes, postcards and witty illustrations, Letters From Camp is a hilarious romp through a summer camp run amok.

From the Back Cover:

The brother-sister pairs who arrive for the summer at Camp Happy Harmony are almost too busy fighting with each other to notice how strange the camp really is. Not only are the campers forced to wear bizarre uniforms, eat gross food, and do chores all day, but the members of the family that runs the camp fight constantly -- with each other. Are the campers in danger? Or -- in spite of sibling wars -- do they need to stick together to solve the mystery humming under the surface of Camp Happy Harmony?

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
