“Friedman vividly portrays how small lapses of judgment lead to unintended consequences, as well as how to apologize with grace. The believable story, large print, and many illustrations make this another enjoyable entry in the Mallory chapter-book series.” —Booklist

Mallory’s Super Sleepover
Written by: Laurie Friedman
Illustrated by: Jennifer Kalis

Mallory wants to celebrate having just turned ten, by having a sleepover. Mallory and her best friend begin making the plans. Mallory’s parents want her to have a small sleepover, but her best friend Mary Ann has other ideas. Mallory is too excited to say anything. The two girls plan to have a water balloon fight, tell scary stories and have a cupcake decorating contest. The big day is finally here. No one listens to Mallory when things begin to get out of hand. What will happen? Will Mallory have the best sleepover ever, or will it be the worst one ever?

I enjoyed reading this book. I especially liked the scrapbook part in the back and the good wishes that Mallory extends to the readers, at the end. The story and the illustrations are played out beautifully in this story. This is a definitely good read for the kids. There is a message to the story about doing the right thing even if it is not what everyone else wants to do. This book is an Advanced Reader/Review Copy.
