An urban bedtime romp from debut author Anne Wynter and Caldecott Honoree Oge Mora.
Everybody in the red brick building was asleep.
Until . . .
Rraak! Wake up!
Pitter patter STOMP!
A chain reaction of noises wakes several children (and a cat) living in an apartment building. But it’s late into the night, so despite the disturbances, one by one, the building’s inhabitants return to their beds—this time, with a new set of sounds to lull them to sleep.
This timeless bedtime picture book features diverse characters and a rhythm so perfect that it’ll prepare little readers for slumber themselves.
Full-color collage illustrations were created with acrylic paint, gouache, china markers, patterned paper, pastels, and old book clippings.
