For people who claim to repair disharmonious sibling relationships, the Harmony family singers-six over-the-hill entertainers-seem far too busy arguing among themselves to do much good for the campers. Oh, and meanwhile, someone is trying to murder camp postmaster Lyle Splink, the only normal adult around.For their own protection, the campers must put aside their sibling discord long enough to solve a diabolically amusing mystery and bring the villainous Harmonys to justice. Told in letters, secret notes, postcards and witty illustrations, Letters From Camp is a hilarious romp through a summer camp run amok.
