Grandma Tillie knows just how to royally entertain her grandchildren. To Sophie and Chloe's delight, whenever Grandma Tillie babysits, she seems to disappear, only to be replaced by a parade of lovable characters.

There's Tillie Vanilly with the bright pink hair, star of The Tillie Vanilly Show, who loves to tell jokes and dance the conga, Chef Silly Tillie with the lampshade hat, who offers up a dinner of Giggly Chili, and Madame Frilly Tillie with the sparkly
eyeglasses and  towel turban, the world's most creative bath-bubble stylist.

But who will appear to tuck Sophie and Chloe into bed? Hiker Hilly Tillie? Explorer Chilly Tillie? Zoo-lady Gorilly Tillie?
