Lulu's Sleepover (Alanna Max) by Anna McQuinn and Rosalind Beardshaw is a wonderful picture book about Lulu's first sleepover at her cousin Hani's house. It tackles all the build-up to the big day – what will Lulu wear? What are they going to do together? – to all the events that unfold in this different home.

Sleepovers are an important rite of passage for young children and they will be nicely reassured by this gentle story, which shows the little cousins playing together and having a lovely time.
