When Eddie and his family decide on a camping trip to the seaside, Eddie packs an interesting selection of essential items including a whistle, a compass and pieces of string.
The family have lots of fun putting up the tent, building a campfire and cooking in the open air and Eddie embraces life out of doors building his own little camp and making a map of his surroundings.
When Eddie meets a new friend who has lost a puppy, he gets a chance to save the day and his kit of 'essential items' is shown to be more useful than he might have expected.
A delightful read-aloud story to introduce youngsters to the joys of camping with additional hints and tips for would-be campers.
