This one is so much fun and could teach kids how to correspond whether it's pen pals at school or writing to friends or family because Bettina is writing to her aunt who's first in Antarctica then the Amazon. The characters are very funny, the writing even funnier, and the colors are bright and cheerful.

What a unique and wonderful book, the story unfolds through letters written Bettina and her Aunt Tallulah. Bettina is at summer Camp Oogie-Waa-Waa and her aunt is currently living at the South Pole. Their letters describe the many catastrophes that happen to them. The illustrations are hilarious with many surprises. Even the ending will have you laughing and wanting more.

This exchange of letters between a young girl away at summer camp, and her adventurous aunt living in exotic places shows appreciation between aunt and niece, and the place for expressing gratitude even for gifts that may not be quite as useful as the giver intended. This is such a fun book. The text (and subtext) are hilarious, and the illustrations push the story to higher hilarity,

Honestly, this book did not hold my 5 year old niece's attention at all. I should have found it at the library before buying it because I wish I would have purchased a different book.

Carmela wrote her first story, "Forget-Me-Not," when she was ten-years-old. She hasn't forgotten it... she
