Martin Bridge: Blazing Ahead!

 
Joseph Kelly
Series: 
 

Martin Bridge returns with more daily slice-of-life adventures. This time, Martin's first overnight camping trip with the Junior Badgers is going to be a weekend with the works! There are badges to earn, gooey campfire treats to eat, hiking trails to explore ... and Alex's pranks to avoid. But when Martin finds himself on the receiving end of his friend's horror-movie slime, it's payback time!

Join Martin Bridge as he blazes ahead with a flashy campfire performance, an inspired prank of his own, some lightning-fast bicycle repairs and a surefire way to make his father's old lawn mower go like blazes.

Awards & Reviews

“Martin is a real boy with parents who allow him to find his own way, a rarity in today's early chapter books. Warm, expressive graphite and charcoal sketches add an extra dimension to (the story).”
— Horn Book, October 2006
“Martin Bridge returns in another book that's just as funny as the previous titles in the series ... Kelly's expressive, quirky drawings in graphite and charcoal with digital shading complement the text.”
— School Library Journal, November 2006
“Realistic, everyday situations, likable characters and simple stories written in rich language with solid dialogue and humor will make this a series with endless variations, and readers will eagerly anticipate every new installment.”
