Description

Angelica isn't a liar. She just loves making up stories. When she goes to sleepaway camp and is mistaken for a princess, she could easily clear up the misunderstanding...but pretending to be royalty is way more fun! When her best friend from home surprises her at camp, Angelica is forced to fess up. Luckily, she also has a talent for repairing things, and when disaster strikes on the girls' kayaking trip, Jelly has to repair more than just her newfound friendships.

Editorial Reviews

"Princess Angelica: Camp Catastrophe is a great chapter book that children will relate to, especially if they have been to summer camp. Who cannot enjoy a book with adventure and messages built in? Hopefully Ms. Polak tells more stories about the delightful Princess Angelica!"

— Resource Links

"[Angelica] is a strong female character who is capable of solving her own problems…This story has broad appeal, and readers will find themselves relating to Angelica's struggles. Polak succinctly captures the insecurities one encounters when meeting new people and trying new things…Angelica's flaws and strengths drive the story, and readers will enjoy travelling into her magical royal court before settling in to realize that she is just like them: she, too, makes mistakes and has insecurities. Illustrations bring the camp setting to life and elaborate on some of the situations in which Angelica finds herself…An enjoyable read with a strong message and relatable characters. Recommended."

— CM Magazine

"Angelica is a kind feminist who befriends all who meet her…[A] summer-camp story about being yourself."
