Jerome Alligator is so excited he can hardly stand it. The students from Swamp School are going on a camping trip this weekend. He plans to fish, swim, and hike for two whole days. Everything would be wonderful if only he didn't have to share a tent with Buster Wormley. Buster likes to play jokes-like putting ants in someone's lunch box. At the campground, he seems to be everywhere, playing not-so-funny tricks. Will this turn out to be Jerome's worst weekend ever? When Jerome comes up with a clever solution to the class bully, the result surprises everyone-even himself. Critically acclaimed children's author Eileen Christelow wrote this humorous tale in response to a request from a group of second graders. Beginning readers will want to hear again and again, Johnny Heller's animated performance of the feisty young alligators.
