Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Delightful cumulative rhyme leads up to the consequences of piling too many sleepy people and animals in a cozy bed. “Don Woods paintings endow Audreys familiar plot with beauty and newness, conveying atmosphere as well as illustrating the story.”--Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

A cozy bed, a snoring granny, a dreaming child, a dozing dog, a snoozing--WAIT! There's a surprise in store, and little ones will want to discover it over and over again. So pull on your sleeping cap and snuggle in for a timeless cumulative tale that's truly like no other. Don and Audrey Wood's beloved picture book has sold more than one and a half million copies. To celebrate its birthday, the original hardcover book now has a fresh new design for both the jacket and interior, and the reproduction of the illustrations has been enhanced to better match the original artwork. A CD is tucked into a sleeve on the inside the front cover. The music, originally produced in 1989, is based on the book and was written and performed by children's musicians Carl and Jennifer Shaylen. The CD begins with a reading of the story and follows with six original songs that are just as fun, jaunty, and sweet as the book itself.

Synopsis:

A colorful riot of a bedtime story about sleepy people and animals napping in a cozy bed. Full-color illustrations throughout. Booklist Editors' Choice; Golden Kite Award; IRA/CBC Children's Choice; NCTE Teachers' Choice; New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book of the Year.
