Wedgie & Gizmo vs. the Great Outdoors (Hardcover)
“A delightfully fun read that will leave you in stitches!”—Caldecott Medalist Dan Santat
Fans of Stick Dog and My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish will LOL when rival pets Wedgie and Gizmo brave their first family camping trip in book three of bestselling author Suzanne Selfors’s hilarious illustrated series.
Wedgie and Gizmo’s humans are taking their first family vacation—to a campground by a lake! And their pets are too destructive to stay home alone. Wedgie the corgi is super-excited. He can’t wait to chase squirrels and poop in the woods!
But Gizmo, the evil genius guinea pig, has no time for games. He must convince the forest critters to join his Evil Horde and help him take over the world—one tent at a time.

“Gizmo and Wedgie alternate narrating duties in this hilarious chapter book, and their over-the-top personalities make the story clip along.”
“A delightfully comedic look at the chaos that is family life… There’s plenty of warmth and humor, with a bit of sardonic bite from Gizmo, and readers of Jamieson’s The Great Pet Escape will find much to love here.”
