A brave older sister becomes a princess and her timid younger sister becomes a panther--and together, they begin a wondrous trek. Before their very eyes, their sandbox becomes a stretch of desert, their wagon turns into a trusty pack camel, they pitch their silken tent, and the two sisters have an extraordinary--and brave --nighttime adventure in their very own backyard.

The world of imagination sparkles to life through vibrant illustrations, and the rhythmic text makes for a joyful read-aloud.
