Emma can't wait to have a sleepover with her cousin Abby! But snow is falling outside the Snow Blew Inn where Emma is waiting. Stranded travelers arrive seeking shelter, and soon the inn is packed. Emma even gives up her own room for the Fox family. "Where are Abby and her Mama?" She wonders. When Abby finally arrives, she and Emma camp out on the parlor floor and have their sleepover at last!

This cozy story is about family, friendship, and sharing.

That same storm delays Emma’s sleepover with her cousin, Abby, but doesn’t stop a flood of travelers who need lodging, despite the “No Vacancy” sign.

Emma, too, becomes more impressive as the pages turn: while she never totally submerges her own interests or anxieties (it would have been unrealistic had she done so), she's every bit her mother's lieutenant, ably making the guests comfortable and cozy.
