Maisie’s family are heading to France for the best camping trip ever! There’ll be croissants and baguettes and . . . snails?

 

But when they arrive, France feels an awful lot like England. And camping seems like an awful lot of bother. Especially when you’ve got FIVE stinky brothers who are talented in the art of being really extremely ANNOYING and your best-friend-who-is-almost-as-good-as-a-sister is in a whole other country.

 

But then Maisie meets Mademoiselle Claudette and things start looking up. Perhaps camping might be OOH LA LA after all?
