Although many armadillos reside in the Texas Hill Country, this is the story of a very special one named Bluebonnet. Dubbed "everyone's favorite armadillo" by "Texas Highways" magazine, Bluebonnet is nurtured by her armadillo family until it's time to leave the burrow. When she discovers a camp by the Guadalupe River, she longs to be a camper. That's when the fun and unexpected adventures begin! Mary Brooke Casad is the author of the popular "Bluebonnet Armadillo Adventure Series," detailing the travels of Texas' most loved armadillo. Benjamin Vincent has been illustrating Bluebonnet's adventures for more than 20 years.
