Grandpa! Grandpa! Come and see the things I brought for you and me--I packed my bag. I filled it tight with ... Everything to Spend the Night! Rollicking rhymes and illustrations packed with funny details reflect this exuberant narrator's delight as she pulls one thing after another out of her overnight bag and invites her grandpa to join in the fun. Readers will laugh not only at what she's packed, but at the imaginative things she does: "Now let's pretend we're in a lake. I brought an oar. watch me take two chairs, add pillows... Look, a boat! Climb on board -- off we float!" It isn't until everything's out of the bag that she discovers she's forgotten one very important thing: her pj's. Luckily, Grandpa has a solution. Full of joy and humor, this is one overnight no child will want to miss.

Arriving at her grandfather's for a sleepover, a dynamo of a girl gleefully starts unpacking her duffel: ""First some Apples we can share/ with Bunny and my fuzzy Bear./ They cry whenever I'm not home./ I couldn't leave them all alone."" But this is no simple alphabetical show-and-tell.
