Bubble and Pearl are going to sleep in a tent outdoors all night. How exciting! They each have a sleeping bag and a pillow, and Bubble has brought his flashlight.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Bubble and Pearl head off with sleeping bags for an overnight in their tent. Like most picture books about camping, this one involves a bit of worry about the dark, some strange noises, and encounters with animals. However, these animals are domestic, not wild, and they prefer joining the children to staying outdoors. The tent and sleeping bags expand to accommodate mice, rabbits, a cat, sheep, a dog, and even a horse. Intriguing overhead views add to the amusement of stuffing in one creature after another. The peaceful ending reveals the varied dreams of all the animals. This cozy bedtime tale will have appeal year-round but especially before a family campout.-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato
Kirkus Reviews
Bubble confidently walks right to the tent, securely holding his sleeping bag and pillow for his overnight tent adventure with his sister, uncertain Pearl, who awkwardly holds her gear as if it might fall on her feet. When night comes, she looks wide-eyed and uncertain where Bubble is the picture of calm manly courage, so at ease that he falls asleep even though three mice join them in the tent. He wakes up to welcome a cat, rabbits, dog, sheep, hen, and horse, but once the tent is full to bulging, everyone including no-longer nervous Pearl falls asleep to dream. Pearl's trepidation doesn't add to the story; instead, it mildly supports a body of literature that pictures girls as timid and afraid. The expressive, simple watercolor and black line drawings introduce and then expand this aspect taken from the text, but also add to the joy of outdoor adventure and the humor involved in a tent stuffed with children and animals. Kruusval's (You're Growing Up, Pontus!, 2001, etc.) skill in color and design heightens the effectiveness of the cumulative structure of the text with a grace to charm a young reader who may read one more book before going to sleep. (Picture book. 3-5)

    I loved this book mostly because of the friendliness of the two children who go camping. I think my favorite part of the whole book is when the little boy says, ¿It¿s only the sheep who wants to come in, probably the sheep would just like some company-there¿s nothing odd about that.¿ I found this line hilarious! I think children would like to read this book because they can relate. When I was little I used to love animals, and would wonder if they could talk, and would try to think what it was they would be thinking in their minds. In this book in a way the children and ¿guessing¿ what the animals would be thinking or feeling, which I think is adorable. When I read this book it reminded me of when I was a kid and went camping or was outside at night. So I could relate to the book even when I am older and in college. Overall I loved the book and plan to purchase it some day for my children or classroom library.
