Description
A stormy night, a snoring dad, a houseful of restless sleepers, and some masterfully humorous timing make this a classic read-aloud for bedtime or anytime.
It's the middle of the night. Everyone's snoozing in bed when out of the darkness, squeak goes the door. Mama's eyes fly open. Who is awake? Evie? Ivy? Little Mo? On a stormy night in a little house, only Papa keeps snoring away snurkle, snark unaware of the wild weather outside and the growing number of nervous bedmates within. Can nothing wake him? Creak says the bed. . . . With a cumulative series of comical events, this delightful story sends readers barreling toward bedlam.
