What could be more fun for a 6-year-old than having your Nana and her new husband take you to a theme park? But the fun is spoiled when Nana and Bob announce that they've planned a surprise: they are going to be joined by Bob's granddaughter, Hortense. It turns out to be the worst surprise ever. Nana shares her room with Hortense instead of her disgruntled little grandson. She sings her special good-night song to Hortense. She goes on all the scary rides with Hortense. And, worst of all, Hortense has a special name for Nana.

Mrs. Prouse's class liked how Nana and Hortense went on the scary rides at Wonderworld. Spark liked the illustrations because they showed Hortense and Nana's mouths open on the rides. Ali liked the ending when Hortense shared her bunny with the boy. Alex liked when Hortense won the bunny and the giraffe with Nana. Dan Dan liked when Nana got cotton candy in her hair.

“In a well told story, Hartt-Sussman gently captures all the feelings of jealousy and exclusion as well as the very real love between grandparents and grandchildren (and between Bob and Nana) and brings it to a satisfying conclusion.”
