A little girl's trip to summer camp is turned upside down when a high-spirited bear pays her a visit. Now, this bear could have gone fishing, jogging, hiking or biking. Instead, he makes himself right at home in the little girl's cabin, laying claim to her bed. First he grabs a quick nap. Then he joyfully plucks a tune on his banjo. This song and dance routine leads to more colorful antics, and in no time at all the naughty intruder is literally swinging from the rafters!
Miller relates an anecdote, which is based on one of her own summer camp experiences, in rollicking, rhyming verse. Throughout the story, an enthusiastic, big brown bear opts out of myriad campground diversions in favor of hanging out in the cabin and on the bunk of a mortified little girl in pigtails.
