This book is about funny survival tips to Camp Green Lake. Camp Green Lake is a juvenile correctional facility. If you don?t know what that means, it?s like a six-month detention. It also includes very funny short stories all packed into a 90-page book. It provides knowledge of identification of some poisonous animals. One of the tips is, "if you see a rattle snake, get away quickly but walk, don?t run." Read on to find more survival tips to Camp Green Lake.

I personally like the pattern in the book. The pattern is: a short story about Camp Green Lake then a survival test. I like the part when Twitch tells Mr. Sir, "Stop bumping your gums!!" (A.K.A. "Be quiet.") I liked Twitch because he couldn?t sit down without twitching some part of his body.

I recommend this book to all fellow comedians because it is very humorous. I also recommend it to all in second to fifth grade.
