Award-Winning author and owner/founder of Oakbrook Publishing House, Wilhelminia Willie Ripple was the spokesperson for Hasbro s new Twister Dance DVD game promoting their SlumberJumber Sleepover Night with Hunter Public Relations (New York).

She has also been interviewed on the radio for her award-winning What Do I Do?® book series.Review:
The idea of sleep, to many kids and teens, is anathema; after all, suppose something happened while they re conked out for the evening? Ripple, author of four other What Do I Do?® books for parents, tackles, along with her coauthor, about eight different issues with her fifth book on slumber parties. There s the matter of baby-sitters now completely unnecessary when following one of her 14 party ideas. Or the child entertainment factor, obliterated by a great selection of creative ideas, from cartoon to safari themes. Even the food challenge, solved by easy-to-make snack type recipes. Every sleepover includes instructions galore: reproducible invitations, crafts, stories to tell, games and videos to play, plus a 20-something list of extra ideas should hours need to be filled. A first chapter on the whats, whys, and hows of slumber parties answers almost every conceivable parental query, for handling bedwetting accidents to ascertaining if a child is ready for a sleepover. --Barbara Jacobs, BOOKLIST, August 2002
Thanks, Ms. Ripple, for saving us the trouble of writing a slumber party book! We had planned to add a slumber party book to our titles, but after seeing Wilhelminia "Willie" Ripple's Slumber Parties - What Do I Do? ® we agreed there was no need. She has written the most complete, imaginative, charming and easy-to-follow book on the subject we've ever seen. The book misses nothing. There are invitation ideas, activities, craft projects, party favors and even menus to suit the occasion. The theme parties are great fun and there's something in the book for every age group and either sex. There are even some parties that the "big girls" will love such as the wedding party sleepover that is bound to break new ground in the bachelorette party circles. In addition, the book contains some great advice on the types of parties for different age groups and tips for parents giving the party or whose child has been invited to one. Congratulations, Willie, on a job well done! What more can we say? This is a book every parent will want to own and follow. --Phyllis Cambria and Patty Sachs Authors of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Throwing a Great Party
This paperback book covers more then just the ABC s of slumber parties. It includes a beginning section on the What, Why and How of Slumber Parties that even gives advice for those possible bed-wetting youngsters as well as advice for the oldsters from teepeeing parties to co-ed sleepovers, listed in the seven stages of sleepovers. The best of the best of this book are the 14 imaginative and fun themes listed throughout these 14 chapters. As promised by the author, the Little Professor theme, with creative science experiments would go over with any group. I was not real enamoured to see the Wedding Glamour section but was appreciative of the Double Trouble (twins) chapter. Each idea, or chapter, contains several ideas on the theme, from invitations to crafts and food. Each theme also includes a short story and lots of tips and extra ideas to keep your party crowd busy. This book is a wealth of information just for the game and crafts ideas. Whether you pick the Sports You ve Never Heard Of chapter or the Dog Party, you won t be disappointed. There is even a video recommendation area for two age groups listed under each theme. --Laura Zemlicka Flora,Teacher for Coburg Elementary, Eugene SD
