Another Silly Dilly songbook that will have kids asking for more.

Author Alan Katz and illustrator David Catrow team up to take familiar tunes and create 14 laugh-out-loud songs about summer camp.

"Somebody Send Me Home Now!" is an ode to atrocious camp food sung to the tune of "Skip to My Lou." Kids will be in stitches when they hear the new lyrics to "The Mexican Hat Dance" about stinky camp clothes. A few other titles include "Trying Out for the Camp Show," sung to "Take Me Out to the Ballgame," and "This Whole Bunk Is Very Cluttered," sung to "The Battle Hymn of the Republic."
