Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
Zoe's birthday is coming up soon and her mom makes a number of suggestions where to have the party. Nothing seems to catch Zoe's fancy until Mom suggests a slumber party. Zoe makes four invitations and is very happy that all her friends can come. The festivities start with pizza and a big cake at a local restaurant. The first complication is that all four of the girls want to sleep next to Zoe, and she only has two sides. They come up with a very creative solution. The scary stories they read create their own drama, but Mom comes through to save the day. Everyone finally gets some sleep, and they all agree it was the best birthday party ever.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1Zoe and her mother decide that the child will have a slumber party. The birthday girl, four of her friends, and her parents go to a restaurant for pizza and cake, then to a drugstore to pick out nail polish for manicures. At home, the girls paint pictures on rocks, then get ready for bed. At bedtime, they argue, cry, become frightened while reading a scary story, and find it difficult to sleep. Zoe's mother calms them down with a funny story so that they are able to make it through the night. The illustrations, while pleasant and reflective of the ongoing activities, are flat and cartoonlike. While the book is too young in vocabulary, tone, and pictures for children most likely to be invited to this type of party, it will reassure those who begin attending sleepovers at an early age.Anne Parker, Milton Public Library, MA
Hazel Rochman
Mama helps Zoe plan what to do for her birthday party. The circus is too expensive, the outdoors is too full of bugs and bumblebees. They decide on a slumber party. Zoe makes invitations, and her four friends accept. After pizza in a restaurant down the street, the girls brush their teeth and lay out their sleeping bags in the living room. Then the tension begins (everybody wants to sleep next to Zoe), and it climaxes when one of the guests reads a scary story. Someone starts to cry; suddenly everyone wants to go home, and that makes Zoe cry. But Mama saves the day with hot chocolate and a funny story, and the kids seem to fall asleep laughing. The telling is as warm and affectionate as Mama's bond with Zoe. Caseley gets the details right about what you can plan and what you can't. The pictures in watercolor, colored pencil, and simple black line express the lighthearted tone of this story of friendship and nervousness and fun.
