I Want to Go Home is the story of a boy’s various escape attempts from Camp Algonkian.

Rudy Miller is sent to Camp Algonkian by his parents on the misguided advice of the school guidance counselor. There, Rudy is determined to become his own man, by making snide comments of the camp founder’s bow-legs, playing chess instead of the scheduled activities, or making a salaté for his counselor. At night, instead of singing campfire songs, Rudy spends his time planning various escapes from the camp. When a badly planned wager leaves Rudy in charge of the camp for a day, the campers will either kill him or call him a hero. Our Novel Studies provide a teacher and student section with a variety of activities, discussion questions and answer key to create a well-rounded lesson plan.

I was very pleased with this resource. It offered a variety of activities. My students and I enjoyed working through them. Some of the activities were challenging and the Answer Key definitely was needed on a few occasions but overall, I appreciate the variety and the convenience of this readily available resource. Thank you
