A Weekend With Wendell

Written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes

Wendell was spending the weekend at Sophie’s house. Playing house, Wendell was the mother, the father, and the children; Sophie was the dog. Playing bakery, Wendell was the baker; Sophie got to be the sweet roll. Wendell shone his flashlight in Sophie’s eyes when she tried to sleep. But when he gave her a new hairdo with shaving cream, it was the last straw, and Sophie made up a game that left Wendell speechless for a time — and won the day for friendship.


“A hilarious read-aloud that could prove a turning point in the life of a bossy child—or a mousy one.”—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
