Who are the two funniest guys at Camp Wolf Trail? Will ’n’ Zee—no question! The best buddies have emailed all winter long, and now they’re back at camp, with millions of great ideas for practical jokes and more than a few big surprises to spring on their fellow campers and counselors. Will and Zee are a trickster team of two. They’re partners-in-pranks, a dynamic duo, a famously hilarious pair. At first, all the mayhem and mischief they cause is a big success. Who’d have guessed that a stuffed octopus, toilet paper, and pies could be combined so comically? Will and Zee’s twist on a Camp Wolf Trail tradition is brilliant—and means that they’re rewarded with the privilege of doing Dead Man’s Dive off Big Boulder into O’Mannitt’s Cove. They’re sure their next triumph will be finding the camp’s best-kept secret: the location of Hidden Falls. But when Zee tries to include other guys in the searching, plotting. planning, and fun, Will gets mad, and their friendship blows up. Zee must face his scariest, most dangerous crisis on his own while on a kayaking trip, and for a while, it looks like all is lost. Will Zee be able to save Cookie’s life and rescue his friendship with Will, too? Is this the end of Will ’n’ Zee? Must Hidden Falls remain hidden? One thing’s for sure: Zee will have an adventure-packed summer at Camp Wolf Trail!

Zee is thrilled to be going back to Camp Wolf Trail. He and his good friend and fellow prankster, Will, have been e mailing their plans back and forth all year. Zee is surprised when Will isn't at camp when he arrives, especially after another camper hands him a postcard-- Will isn't coming. Zee is crushed, but Will shows up under a bed and the pranks begin. They hide a plush octopus on another camper's kayak, a camp tradition which also means they get to pie the other camper in the face. They do crafts, search for the elusive diving rock, and learn kayaking skills. An overnight kayaking trip almost leads to disaster when the cook's dog, Cookie, tries to follow the boys across the lake in search of bacon. Will and Zee overcome some rough patches but enjoy their time at camp, and their campmates.
Good Points
There are not many books dealing with overnight camps, especially for boys, and there are lots of interesting tips for readers who may not be familiar with the outdoor camp experience, but there is enough additional information for experienced campers, including notes at the back about a dedicated former camper who grew up to re-introduce wolves to Yellowstone National Park.

This is the third book in the series, but I was not at all confused going in without remembering the other two. A new camping season means some new characters, and old ones are reintroduced. Will and Zee have some tension in their friendship, especially since they are not assigned to the same cabin, and it is dealt with in a constructive fashion.

The large print and full color illustrations in this will appeal to slightly younger or more reluctant readers who want a solid, realistic story with a large dose of humor and enough action to keep things moving along.
