What do parents actually do when they go out for the night? In this picture book, two children who stay at home with a sitter when their parents go out for an evening imagine a series of increasingly wild adventures that befall them during the course of date night. The babysitter plays along, while reassuring them that their parents are quite capable of handling a night out- even one that includes runaway hot air balloons, camel caravans and a daring rescue that requires using Mum's high heels as climbing crampons.

Evil unicorns. Ostriches guarding a top secret lab. Vampires at the movie theater. Parents going on a date could be a disaster!!! I was not expecting such a wild and fun book. Goodman and Kisiel bring their strongest comedy game here, with a strong improv vibe. This is a perfect example of creating an engaging and entertaining story while also addressing a Very Important Topic, this one about anxiety when your parents leave you with a babysitter. Bui draws cute kids, cute hipster parents, and a babysitter with glasses that I totally covet.
