Penny Pack Rat lives in the Sonoran desert. Like all pack rats, Penny loves to collect things and her little burrow is filled with stuff she's found - always at night when the desert is cool. One day when her Nana says she's always wanted a shiny silver spoon, Penny becomes determined to find one for her. Penny starts out at night, wearing her backpack and looking for a silver spoon. Her friends worry about her safety. Sure enough, there are coyotes at the miner's camp, her favorite place to hunt. Will Penny be able to find that special spoon without getting caught? In this charming story told in verse, Conrad J. Storad creates a brave little pack rat who proves she's faster and smarter than the big coyotes. Facts about the Desert Pack Rat and a short list of Words to Learn included at the end of the book, provide extra value for young readers and listeners. Nathaniel Jensen's detailed and dramatic paintings recreate the beauty of the Sonoran Desert and depict a courageous and affectionate Penny who is certain to become a favorite of children everywhere. Readers will love finding their favorite ''junk'' in the many rooms of Penny's underground house. Here is a book that will appeal to ''pack rat'' readers of all ages.
Reviews about Desert Night Shift (5):

We are studying desert habitats in my class. I read this book to my students and we made a desert scene using torn paper. They created a rat to glue on top of it. Fun lesson with illustrations that allowed my pupils to visualize the beauty of the desert.

I have purchased several of these books on desert critters for my Godchild who lives in England. This little Pack Rat calls his Grandmother NANA which is what my wee boy calls me. So we both got a kick out of this little story.

There was alot of information in this book. All kinds of animals and it showed the circle of life. I'm a teacher and I'm always trying to talk to the children about nature and how everything is connected. Nice pictures too.

Even as an adult, I LOVE LOVE LOVE any book by Conrad J. Storad. I am particularly partial to this one, because ... (true confession alert) "Hello, my name is Stephanie and I am a pack rat," just like "Penny Pack Rat." This delightful tale takes place in the Sonoran Desert. (I'm also a desert dweller from AZ). It's nighttime and Penny has her backpack on and is in search of a silver spoon for her Grandma.

Told entirely in verse, we follow Penny as she tries to fulfill her nana's wish of owning a silver spoon. Penny braves the dangers of the night; snakes, coyotes and more. Hence, the title: Desert Night Shift.

"Oh, desert days are bright and hot,
Swift, hungry creatures rule,
But every little pack rat learns
That night shift work is cool!"
