‘Like Bug Juice on a Burger’ by Julie Sternberg and Matthew Cordell


Eleanor heads off to summer camp in Julie Sternberg and Matthew Cordell’s sequel to their 2011 children’s book Like Pickle Juice On A Cookie and she’s anything but thrilled about the experience.

The book, Like Bug Juice On A Burger, is due out on April 2 from Amulet Books and is for children ages 7 and up.

I hate camp. I just hate it. I wish I didn’t. But I do. Being here is worse than bug juice on a burger. Or homework on Thanksgiving. Or water seeping into my shoes. In this sequel to the critically acclaimed Like Pickle Juice on a Cookie, Eleanor is off to summer camp. At first she’s excited to carry on the family tradition at Camp Wallumwahpuck, but when she gets there she finds icky bugs, terrible food, and worst of all: swim class, where she just can’t seem to keep up with everyone else. But as the days go on, Eleanor realizes that even the most miserable situations can be full of special surprises and that growing up is full of belly flops.
