  • Chris Van Dusen has written another very good childs book, “A Camping Spree With Mr. Magee” is a very entertaining story with very imagination provoking illustrations about the misadventures of Mr. Magee and Dee as they perch themselves on a cliff area over a rushing river.
    As you may notice is Magees yellow car that is drawn in some of his other books and his dog is exactly the opposite variety of colors then Jacks from “If I Built A Car”.
    The quality of this book is exceptional and age 6 or 7 would be about the correct age for a young reader to read this, but younger children will enjoy being read this book to.
  • Bought this for my grand daughter who just turned 5 today because I have seen two of the other Mr Magee books and enjoyed them. I live 1500 miles away, so I thought I would read it with her on FaceTime. Instead, after reading it with her mother last night, she told me the whole story, every detail, with excitement and the cutest expressions! I felt like she lived the book, went on the adventure with them. Certainly a hit that will be read many times by my grand children. It’s on my list to buy as gifts also.
