Description - Ben Over Night by Sarah Ellis
"A 2006-2007 Chocolate Lily Book Award Nominee in the Picture Book category""Ontario Library Association Best Bets List 2005Blue Spruce Award shortlist, 2005" Ben likes nothing more than to go over to Peter's house. When the two friends play together, Ben can be anything he wants: a pirate, a musician, a cook. He can even be a potato! But when it comes to sleepovers, all Ben can think about is going home - right away. He doesn't like the strange bed or the unfamiliar noises in the night. And he doesn't have his own cat to warm his tummy. Mum and Dad try to come up with some ideas, but flashlights and familiar blankets don't make Ben feel better. Joe offers to come along for protection, but Ben doesn't want his big brother going on sleepovers with him. It looks like Ben just can't be a sleepover-nighter. Or can he? A delightful sequel to the bestseller "Big Ben," this is the perfect book for preschoolers and beginner readers who are facing their own overnight challenges or have younger siblings who might need a little encouragement.
