it was ok
Read in June, 2011

Got to page ~200 of ~350 before felt I'd had enough of the camping disaster stories! I am sure Emma Kennedy's family are glad she has put them all into a cute wee book for them to reminisce over- oh the laughs they must have had (if indeed the disasters are all true?!).... shame the reader feels more & more out of it and exhausted by tale after tale.
Not sure a book of this kind was the best format to showcase these stories- better to have been a serial column or on radio; certainly breaking them up would make each more enjoyable.
The cover is shocking- I would never have choosen it- as soon as I saw Dawn French saying 'frighteningly hilarious' on front I thought I am not going to laugh!..... but actually there were a few bits that made me laugh out loud.
Cant beilieve Lil gave this 7/10- I was more with Kirsty's 2/10!
