Description: Tiny and his friend are going camping! First, they gather supplies, then they venture into the great outdoors (a safe backyard) to set up camp and play games. Together they sing songs, chase frogs, and capture fireflies. But when it’s bedtime, they discover Tiny isn’t quite tiny enough for the tent. That’s okay! Tiny always finds his own way to fit anywhere.

Review from SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL: “With big, clear pictures, a short, simple line of text on each page, and lots of repetition, this title in the Viking Easy-to-Read series will draw new readers into a playful pet story. The first joke is the name of the character: Tiny is actually a huge dog. When the small boy takes Tiny camping, they pack what they need (Tiny creates chaos in the kitchen when it's time to pack the food). They find a good place to camp--which turns out to be in the yard, where they chase fireflies together. When it's time for bed, however, they discover that the tent is too tiny for the huge mutt. They solve the problem in a delightfully funny fashion, and then look at the stars together. The camping adventure close to home is lots of fun, and beginning readers can go on from this book to other pet stories, such as Cynthia Rylant's books about Henry and Mudge.”
