Publishers Weekly

"Children will be eager to attend this magical slumber party."

Publishers Weekly

"Allyn’s digitally created illustrations have the warmth of acrylic paintings, and she gives her ethnically diverse young cast round faces, gleaming eyes, and fuzzy heads of hair. The atmosphere is definitely slumber party cozy, especially after the children settle down to hear Mother Goose read stories from her 'famous book.'"ber party.


 "Youngsters will enjoy these familiar characters freed from their traditional settings."
