Maisy and all her best friends are going camping and it promises to be a wonderful adventure for them all. The first thing that they have to do is to put up the tent. This turns out to be a lot harder than anyone thought it was going to be but by working together they get the business figured out.

After a wonderful evening eating, singing and playing music by the fire, it is at last time to go to bed. Will all four of Maisy?s friends be able to fit in the one tent? It could be a problem, especially when Eddie the Elephant decides to join the rest in the tent for the night.

Perfect for reading out loud and full of lots of loud noises like "pop!" and "hoot" this book will have small children laughing out loud. They will love the predicament Maisy and her smaller friends find themselves in. At the same time they will see how good friends always do things for each other even if it means giving up a bed in a tent!
