The day that Miss Cluck takes the class camping, everyone is very excited. And Boris is the biggest, bravest, most helpful camper of them all! He is ready to step in whenever his little classmates find themselves in trouble. Everyone needs a friend like Boris!
Miss Cluck is taking her class camping. There are various mishaps along the way - the little mice find it difficult to keep up, then Maxwell drops his Teddy in the stream while they play pooh-sticks. Each time, Boris comes to the rescue - earning him praise from Miss Cluck and his classmates. Eventually the animals find a lovely spot for their tepee and they spend the afternoon decorating it before setting off to gather berries for supper. But . . . when they get back to their lovely tepee, they discover that . . . 'Someone had scribbled on the sides. Someone had drawn a moustache on Miss Cluck's face. Someone had pulled down the sticks . . . And someone was going to be in BIG trouble!' The culprits are two naughty wolf cubs and they laugh in the face of Miss Cluck's reprimands (after all, since when have wolves been scared of chickens?) but they soon lose their bravado when Boris steps in with his big bear grin. So Miss Cluck and her pupils reclaim their tent and, after an evening of songs and stories, they're ready for bed. There isn't much room in the tepee once Boris has settled down, but no one minds a bit, after all, they all have a soft, cosy place to sleep!
Carrie was born in 1966 - the year that England won the World Cup! Perhaps this explains her lifelong love of football. After a first degree at Warwick University, Carrie taught in schools in London. She now lives in Kent with her husband, two children and an assortment of animals. She lectures at the University of East London. Carrie's hobbies include skiing, surfing on Cornwall's North Coast and watching West Ham play football - not all at once though! Tim Warnes lives in the Dorset countryside with his wife and two young sons. Tim helps at the village school and his careful observations can be seen in all the authentic details of an infant classroom that he has included in the opening spreads of Bravo, Boris! and also in the way he has successfully captured the caring demeanour of Miss Cluck and the mannerisms of her little pupils. Tim is best known for illustrating the Little Tiger and Santa books for Little Tiger Press. I Don't want to have a Bath! won the Nottinghamshire Children's Book Award in 1997.
