THE CAMEL-KEEPER’S SON Maxmilian (also known as Bo) Stubbs’s mother has just married a very rich man. Bo is looking forward to moving into his stepfather’s big house and attending the snooty Fortnum School in the fall. Everything about Bo’s new life is going to be first class, just like his new navy blazer with the Fortnum crest on the pocket.
But while his mother is on her honeymoon, Bo has to spend a month with his father Woody, an itinerant camel-keeper who entertains at shopping malls and conventions around the country. Woody is decidedly “not” first class, and neither is the eccentric cast of characters Bo meets on their travels. But Bo learns a lot from them that isn’t taught at Fortnum…about love and loyalty and the art of pretending — and that class and first class are not necessarily the same thing.
One comment I read concerning this book was that there was some objectional material for elementary school readers. Please review the book before your child reads it.
