A sleepover with grandparents is a wondrous event. Juster centers the myriad of activities around one special place, the hello and goodbye window, the window where the story's protagonist first sees her grandparents when she arrives and last waves to them as she departs. Stina Nielsen is an unobtrusive narrator. She relates the story in a quiet manner so that each anecdote and the engaging illustrations (Caldecott Medal 2006) take center stage. Whether it is Poppy's special breakfast, the canopy of stars, the fierce creature in the backyard, or the silly faces everyone makes, the bond between grandchild and grandparents is paramount.
