Mallory's Super Sleepover by Laurie Friedman

Mallory's parents agree to a sleepover party for her tenth birthday. She promises them a small well behaved group of girls.  However, Maryann, Mallory's best friend has other ideas and invites more girls and plans some messy activities which leads to the party spiraling out of control.

As in the other Mallory books, the parents handle the situation calmly yet firmly.  They always let their children know what their expectations are and help Mallory understand what she did wrong.  Young girls can relate to Mallory and will enjoy the stories within the story and the cartoonish illustrations.  What a different place this world would be if more parents were like Mallory's.  From the eye appealing cover and the terrific illustrations by Jennifer Kalis, Laurie Friedman has given us another wonderful book for young girls.
