To Drool, it feels like her mom and dad have been gone an awfully long time. So long that she can hardly taste the fried ice cream Grandma made for dinner, or enjoy hide-and-seek with Kip, Grandma?s pet chicken. Not even playing dress up, having a whole snuggly hugging hour with Grandma, or getting to put the sprinkles on the triple-decker cupcakes can put a smile on Drool?s face. ?I?m an orphan,? she tells Kip.

A child?s fi rst sleepover at Grandma?s is given a hilarious and tender treatment in this candy-colored book by talented newcomer Aileen Leijten.
