Cute and recognizable easy reader about Bettina, who has to do something she doesn't like at all. Anna wants all four girls to spend the night at her house and finish the picture for the school play. But Bettina doesn't really want to. She doesn't like sleeping over at other people's houses. But she can't say that, because she doesn't want the others to think she is a wimp. Maybe she can just ask her mom to pick her up in the evening? But then she loses track of time, and suddenly it's bedtime and Bettina HAS to spend the night in a strange house, where nothing is like at home! And it's pretty scary!
Sidsel Jøranlid knows how schoolchildren feel and how she should write in a way that engages them. And with Monia Nilsen's illustrations, the stories about Bettina come to life.
