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 lawnmower go like blazes. Stories include “Relish” and “Lightning Bolts.”
