Overview

An overnight outing is first-rate fun with this grandparent

Sprout loves his grandma. He also likes trucks, trains and seeing new places. But when Grandma invites him and big sister Clara on a car trip, Sprout is nervous. After all, he's never slept away from Mom and Dad before.

Soon they're on the road passing big rigs, at a restaurant with dancing chickens, and checking into a real hotel. Every step of the way Grandma suggests they call home to report their adventures. That night, Grandma snores bring back Sprout's doubts about traveling, until he musters his courage and finds a solution. Grandma agrees that joining her in bed is a great idea -- he'll be her personal early-warning snore reporter.

By morning the trio are refreshed and ready to visit the tallest-ever trees in the world. With so much to see, and such a cool chaperone, this trip with Grandma doesn't make Sprout so nervous after all.

It's fast-moving fun in this insightful story of first fears and reassuring families.

Booklist - Carolyn Phelan
Human in all but their physical attributes, the characters are depictedin the cheerful line-and-watercolor art as dressed gerbils. Ohi's expressive drawings make Sprout's emotions as easily understandable as the straightforward plot. The target audience will find plenty to like and to identify with here.
