Bettina is invited to a sleepover with Anna and their friends, so they can 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, where nothing is like at home. But she can't say that, because she doesn't want the others to think she is a whimp. 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.
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.
