A perfect bedtime book, Good Night Owl by Greg Pizzoli will have kids eagerly searching every page for the squeaky little mouse that’s keeping Owl from getting to sleep!
Owl is ready for bed. But as soon as he settles in, he hears a strange noise. He’ll never get to sleep unless he can figure out what’s going on! He looks everywhere-in his cupboard, underneath the floorboards-even in his walls. But while he’s busy tearing his house apart, he doesn’t notice one tiny, squeaky, mouse-shaped detail. . . . Will Owl ever get a good night’s sleep?
Any adult will relate to the noises keeping Owl from settling for a good night’s sleep — how many times have you leapt out of bed to investigate an odd sound? — but kids will relish searching each charming illustration for the little mouse. The little details in each scene are so sweet, and it’s fun to take them all in while looking for the mouse.
Young readers will no doubt giggle with delight, as Owl’s growing frustration becomes more and more obvious — and the lengths he goes to in order to find the source of the noise all the more extreme. (To great comic relief, of course.)
Filled with humor, Good Night Owl is still a book about trying to go to sleep — making it the perfect chance for kids to squeeze in one last round of laughter before settling in for bed.
