Olive has played over at her friend Lizard's house before, but tonight she is sleeping over for the first time.
Making pepperoni-marshmallow pizza is tons of fun. But when it's time for bed, Olive finds out that Lizard sleeps without any lights on at all...
Those dark shadows are awfully creepy. And what's that noise down the hall?
This charming story about best friends and new experiences shows how courage and imagination--and a little purple slime--can transform even the spookiest situation, and help allay a child's fear of sleeping over a friend's house for the first time.

Roberta Baker is the author of No Ordinary Olive, Lizard Walinsky and Olive's Pirate Party with Debbie Tilley. Publishers Weekly said, "Baker and Tilley celebrate Olive's vibrancy and remind readers that 'it's hard to be patient with the world racing by'".
Debbie Tilley is the illustrator of several award-winning artwork picture books, including Hey, Little Ant by Phillip and Hannah Hoose, recipient of a Jane Addams Book Award honor, and Little, Brown's Someday You'll Thank Me for This by Marc Gellman (January 2007).
Olive, who first appeared in No Ordinary Olive (2002), can't wait to spend the night at her friend Lizard's house: "We won't even need our pajamas," Olive predicts. "We're staying up all night!" The evening begins with nonstop high jinks: the girls create an insect petting zoo and then play pizza parlor. After hearing ghost stories from Lizard's sister, the girls climb into bed, and Olive is scared by the new sounds and shadows in Lizard's dark room. Olive shares her fears with Lizard, and together the girls set a monster trap, with predictably messy, hilarious results. Vivid details in both the words and the packed ink-and-watercolor pictures elevate this simple story about the common terrors of a first sleepover. Elementary-age kids will easily recognize the giddy, exhausting play as well as the disorienting fears. For younger children planning a sleepover, suggest Ann Whitford Paul's Everything to Spend the Night from A to Z (1999). Engberg, Gillian
