Amy may never have spent a night away from home, but today she declares that she wants to spend not one but three nights at her grandma’s house. So she packs a bag, and off she goes. During the day, she and Grandma have a lovely time, but when Amy is alone in bed she starts to miss her mother and her baby brother and their dog, Bonzo. Luckily Amy has brought her three best things for a visit, which offer a heartening taste of home — in the most remarkable ways! From the stellar creative pair of Philippa Pearce and Helen Craig comes a wonderfully reassuring bedtime tale. With a bookplates signed by the illustrator, Helen Craig, laid in.


Philippa Pearce is best-known as the author ofTom’s Midnight Garden, the winner of the 1959 Carnegie Medal. She has been described as “one of the finest children’s writers of the 20th Century” (The Guardian), “a writer of rare excellence” (The Independent,), and “a unique writer, fascinating person and remarkable woman” (The Scotsman). Upon her death in 2006, the Philippa Pearce Memorial Lecture was established at Cambridge University to celebrate "excellence in writing for children and to emphasize its continuing vital importance."

Helen Craig is best-known as the illustrator of the Angelina Ballerina series, written by Katharine Holabird.
