Two robbers have stolen Mrs. Turtle's eggs from Meadow Marsh Bank. Arabella Raccoon and her twin brother, Albert, decide they will be the ones to catch the thieves. But finding clues is more difficult than they thought. Arabella and Albert are in for a big surprise... and so are the robbers!

Arthur's gone camping. Violet's camping out too, but her friends don't want Arthur around. So Arthur decides to collect slimy things he knows Violet wouldn't like. But he doesn't count on slippery rocks and swooping bats, or hunger pangs. Then he smells hot dogs roasting over a warm fire...

A cute and humorous look at sibling rivalry and bickering. Harvey Muskrat and his older sister, Mildred, try to one-up each other with the exciting things they are doing this summer, like a party or secret club, to which the other isn't invited.

I like the minimal but amusing impact of the parents on a story that is truly about the kids working things out for themselves.
