Synopsis

A brave older sister becomes a princess and her timid younger sister becomes a panther—and together, they begin a wondrous trek. Before their very eyes, their sandbox becomes a stretch of desert, their wagon turns into a trusty pack camel, they pitch their silken tent, and the two sisters have an extraordinary—and brave!—nighttime adventure in their very own backyard.

The world of imagination sparkles to life through vibrant illustrations, and the rhythmic text makes for a joyful read-aloud.

The princess packs up lantern, sleeping bags and red cloak in a great bundle, and she and her panther (she’s drawn whiskers on her little sister, who has polka-dotted PJs and cat ears) go forth across the desert (sandbox) and make the cloak into a red silk tent.
