The tables are turned and the grown-ups have all the fun in this wickedly silly story of parental mayhem.
When two children set off to stay the night at their grandparents’, they spend their day imagining what their parents are doing while they’re away. Jumping on beds, they think, or sledding down the stairs on pillows. Watching hours of television, playing ball in the house, eating junk food, and in general making one VERY big mess! When the kids come home the house looks tidy. “It was pretty quiet,” says Dad… but was it? Mom is hiding something behind her back. And those socks hanging from the ceiling fan weren’t there yesterday.
Cyd Moore’s antic illustrations contrast the wild adventures at home with the more wholesome fun at their grandparents’ house. Jeanie Ransom’s clever tale will keep young readers laughing long after the story has ended.
