Spot Sleeps Over

Eric Hill, Author Putnam Publishing Group $12.99 (1p) ISBN 978-0-399-21815-6
Spot ventures forth into the world in another engaging story about the ever-energetic puppy. This lift-the-flap book, which contains Hill's trademark bold drawings, features the popular pooch as he goes on a sleep-over adventure at the home of his friend Steve the monkey. Spot is so excited that he packs almost all of his possessions, and with a bulging suitcase, a wagonload of toys and his bedroll sets off for his trip--next door. While the two have a happy time playing, the puppy's mother brings over a bag for Spot. At bedtime, Spot is evasive when Steve asks about the contents of his bag, but the final flap reveals the puppy's teddy bear nestled in his arms. As thoughtful mom comes through in the end, this story will hit home for children and adults alike who have faced the universal situation of discovering that a beloved object has been left behind. Ages 1-5. (Sept.)
