    I loved this book just as much now as I did the first time I read it in elementary school. I often found myself grinning and laughing out loud at the crazy shenanigans Pete and Scott pull off throughout the book, and also at the trouble they get themselves into. This is a great book for all young readers, boys and girls alike, and I would highly recommend it!

    This is a marvelous read aloud book for middle grades (3rd to 6th?) The book begins when Pete and Scott, age 12, are readying for High Adventure on an island in the middle of a lake. They're camping for a week by themselves. (Scott's parents will be on the lakeshore) The adventure really starts when they try to land their canoe on the island and both end up in the lake. Much to their chagrin, there are two girls(!!??) already on the island, about to fall down laughing at the boys' antics.

    This means war, Pete says to Scott, and it is. There is much laugh out loud hilarity in the book, and a wise teacher will read it herself and get her own giggles out before attempting to read it to kids. Trust me on this. This book will probably have the toughest of kids rolling out of their desks giggling.

    While waiting for my daughter at the library one day, I was holding the stack of books she planned to check out. I grew bored and selected one for reading ... this book by chance. I couldn't stop laughing out loud (you get in trouble in libraries for this!). I finally had to close the book because I couldn't keep quiet! I think it's hilarious --- all the angst of growing up and learning to pay attention (and avoid unwanted attention) from the opposite sex. If you can read this book without laughing out loud, you have no sense of humor!

    One of my favorites that I've had on my book shelf ever since I was younger, and now I re-read it again this summer and still think it's a great, cute, summer story for middle schoolers. Nothing terribly amazing or that will stick with you, but it's just a quick, fun read. Maybe not super well-written, but that's ok sometimes and kids won't notice. I'm passing this on to the kid I babysit and think she'll enjoy it like I first did at her age. It feels great to re-live a childhood favorite and think like a kid again.

  5. Maria says:

    This was my favorite book as an elementary student. Two girls versus two boys fighting over an island that they are camping on. Tricks, tree houses, minimal adult supervision and a smidge of romance. It had everything!

    Why I picked it up: It was on sell at our school library's book sale for only $.25! What a bargain.

  6. Sara says:

    This is a re-read. At 12, I thought this book was fascinating and hilarious. At 29, I think it's silly and dated.

    *just read it again after coming across it while cleaning off my bookshelf, August of 2012. Silly, yes, dated, yes, but still pretty cute. Maybe it deserves 3 stars.

  7. Chelsea Nelson says:

    I read this in the fourth grade and thought it was the funniest thing on the planet. I recently reread it and it wasn't as funny. Still cute, no great work of literature.

  8. Ashley says:

    I absolutely adored this book when I was a kid. Ever since I've been in love with the idea of having a huge tree house in the woods on a small island in the middle of a lake somewhere.

  9. Luke says:

    This was an excellent quick read. Great for anybody that enjoys the outdoors, especially anyone who has been to youth camp.

    Absolutely hilarious. My dad read this to us when I was in elementary school and I remember laughing uproariously. It holds up. The authors know camping, and they know things need to happen while you're camping or you just end up lying around eating all day.

    Pete and Scott are on a camping trip on what they assume to be an empty island of forest and fur in the middle of a tourist lake (Scott's parents are staying at the lodge). Fortunately/unfortunately, the island is not deserted. While they're paddling up, Pete stands in the canoe to wax poetic on the adventure unfolding before them and, when the canoe tips, the boys see flashbulbs before they hit the water. (It's the '80s.) Jill and Sunny are camping with Jill's aunt and peeing themselves with laughter watching the boys take a swim. The boys vow revenge, and that's how the book goes. The funniest bit is when the boys plant a fake reward letter on a turtle named Snowball and induce the girls to search for its turtle friend Poopsie. Jill's aunt and a writer named Cornelius who summers on the island end up embroiled in the war of practical jokes and it ends with a grand game of Capture the Flag: 'Naturally we wouldn't want to do anything that isn't absolutely fair and square,' said Cornelius. 'But fortunately, Katherine did specifically say, 'Rules, schmules,' and I think we are entitled to use that as our guideline.'

    (view spoiler)[This Island Isn't Big Enough for the Four of Us! ends with a gut punch that reminds us it's the '80s and American was content with its Native genocide for a long time: After everyone (spoiler) learns to get along, Cornelius proposes that the next day they visit a cave he's found, and Pete suggests they name it Dead Indian Cave. Because that's a normal name evocative of creepy cave adventures and not problematic at all. (hide spoiler)]
