Brisk acceptance of the reality of difficult feelings and understated humor make this a fine handbook for children on their way to new and strange places.
Craig’s wide oblong pictures show enticing night scenes of starry skies over sleeping English villages; her sunlit domestic interiors and grassy playgrounds are full of pastel-colored details — exciting, but not alarming, as a visit with a grandparent should be. ... The little girl’s new confidence, so deftly expressed, may inspire apprehensive children to try similar weekends away from home. But there’s more to this story than just that encouragement; more than enough to return to for repeated reading.
—The New York Times Online
Amy ... packs up her trusty teddy, her pajamas and three mysterious objects — her "best things" — and bravely embarks on her adventure. With more than a touch of magic, those three things help her through sudden bouts of nighttime loneliness. Helen Craig couches the fantasy in sturdy down-to-earth illustrations of a thatch-haired youngster, a comfy cardigan-clad Grandma and a tidy landscape of houses snuggled around the village green. And while there’s a moment of genuine anguish, the final scene of Amy astride a carousel dragon is the perfect ending to this gentle story about growing up and growing brave.

In a tale both comforting and magical, a child finds a way to calm her worries during a first visit away from home.
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.
