Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet抯 Camp for Girls Hardcore Lady Types is where Lumberjane scouts gather in summer. Campers Molly, Mal, Ripley, April, and Jo are finding camp holds a lot of surprises. When they抮e beset by a wild group of wolves in the forest (they go into the defensive 揕ittle Red formation), they抮e determined to discover the meaning of the mysterious message 揃eware the Kitten Holy, which appeared above the wolves in the sky. Ditching their counselor, Jen, at every opportunity, they have one supernatural encounter after another. Meeting each challenge means working together, building a steadfast bond. A boisterous graphic novel featuring singular characters, each of whom brings her own unique strengths to the group, is feminist, funny, and refreshing. The book is divided into rousing episodic chapters, each of which is aligned to a section of the facetiously formal Lumberjanes manual detailing the requirements for a specific badge (e.g., 揢p All Night Badge桳earn what goes bump in the night).  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
