About this Book:

A JUNIOR LIBRARY GUILD SELECTION
2018 Green Earth Book Award Short List

The boys are down in the dumps—literally! Someone is dumping trash on the Wilder Family Campground’s property. It’s bad for the campground, and bad for the wildlife there, too. When Cooper, Packrat, and Roy find a fox in the woods with its head stuck in a jar, they know it’s time to investigate. But when the boys start digging, they stumble headlong into the path of a garbage truck and a hungry black bear. Tamra Wight keeps the adventures coming in Book 4 of the award-winning Cooper & Packrat series.

"The author's love for the forests and wildlife of Maine is evident in every detail of the environs. Readers familiar with the Maine woods will recognize it, while those who aren't will feel like they're visiting for the first time . . . good-old fashioned summer fun with a mystery at the center."
—Kirkus Reviews

"These are delightful kids, smart, loyal and respectful, and it’s a pleasure to read about their exciting mystery adventures." 
––Bill Bushnell, Central Maine Newspapers
