BOOK TRAILER: Cartboy Goes to Camp by L.A. Campbell

In the tradition of Diary of a Wimpy Kid comes this laugh-out-loud sequel to L. A. Campbell’s Cartboy and the Time Capsule.

Hopelessly hapless Hal Rifkind, a.k.a. Cartboy, is off to summer camp. And not just any old camp, but history camp. Campers have to learn how to churn butter, plant maize, and carry water from the stream—or they get punished for not doing their chores. What else could possibly go wrong for Cartboy? Read Hal’s journal to find out!

Filled with photos, drawings, and timelines, Hal’s journal chronicles his hilarious adventures at Camp Jamestown—where nothing has changed in 400 years.

About the Author:

L.A. (Lori) Campbell was born in Holland, Michigan. She moved to New Jersey when she was sixth months old. “I hardly remember that,” she is known to say when asked about the transition.

After graduation from the University of Colorado in Boulder, L.A. moved to New York to start a career in advertising as a copywriter. At 28, Lori started her own ad agency, Dweck & Campbell.

The agency won many creative awards including a Cannes Gold Lion on brands such as Comedy Central, New York Magazine, and the famous Dial A Mattress.

In 2002, Lori began a brief hiatus from writing, during which time she and her husband raised two small children and a somewhat vicious cat.

L.A.’s second career as a screenwriter and book author began when her youngest child started kindergarten. “It was either that or hang out with Hot Dog every day,” said L.A. about her decision to work again.

Since 2008, L.A. has penned four screenplays and three books. Her debut novel, Cartboy and the Time Capsule (Starscape Books), is due out in April 2013.
