• Can you please help me find a picture book form my childhood!?

    I read it in the late 80's when I was in elementary school It was a children's picture book with words It was about a brother and sister At one point there was a full two-page spread illustration of the inside of a tent but it was MUCH bigger on the inside (namely, it had bunk beds, a old fashioned soda fountain, some arcade games...).... show more
    I read it in the late 80's when I was in elementary school It was a children's picture book with words It was about a brother and sister At one point there was a full two-page spread illustration of the inside of a tent but it was MUCH bigger on the inside (namely, it had bunk beds, a old fashioned soda fountain, some arcade games...). This tent wasn't the whole story, but just one of the pages. There was more to the story than just this. Now, here's where my memory gets foggy: I think it was about the kids getting a nanny or babysitter who may have been a witch (or just magical) and they didn't want her. She did all these neat things for them (like a tent that was bigger on the inside) so they would like her? I feel like the tent was orange? I read this book dozens of times when I was little and would be grateful to anyone who could help me find it now. Thank you all, in advance, for any help you give!

During the meeting, we're supposed to serve treats/dinner/whatever based off of food and drink mentioned in the book. I read the book at the beginning of the month and had to return it to the library (where it has been checked out by someone else), so I no longer have that to use as a resource. The meeting is in two days, so any help would be monumental! If you remember specific foods that are talked about or eaten by the characters, that would be the very best thing! Thanks in advance!

I'm sorry if this isn't enough to go by, but it's been bothering me for years that I can't remember. Thanks in advance!

It would have 14 pages in all (front and back). Oh, and each teacher would have their own special book, just for them, so there would be 3 custom books in all.

She said it's a guy singing but he sounded older so not Justin Beiber type voice. She said she'd always hear it soon after hearing Fireflies by Owl City. She doesn't remember if it was a hip-hop song, but it had some kind of islandy feel to it?
