유머와 정감이 넘치는 책입니다. 이 세상에서 가장 편한 낮잠을 즐기는 할머니, 어린 아이, 개, 고양이, 쥐... 서로 포개고 껴안으면서 행복한 표정으로 잠속에 빠져 있어요. 그런데 한 마리의 벼룩이 쥐를 물어서 깨우고, 쥐는 고양이를, 고양이는 개를, 개는 어린 아이를, 아이는 할머니를 깨웁니다. 표정과 동작들이 유머러스하게 묘사되어 있습니다.잠잘 때의 비가 내리는 어두운 보라색 색조에서 잠이 깰 때의 맑게 개인 날씨의 노란색 객조에 이르기 까지 배경색의 변화도 세심하게 보여줍니다.

Book Description

There is a house,
a napping house,
where everyone is sleeping.

"Everyone," in this case is a snoring granny, a dreaming child, a dozing dog, a snoozing cat, a slumbering mouse... and a wakeful flea! Uh-oh. Looks like the napping house won''t be napping for long. With their very own brand of humor, Audrey Wood and Don Wood create an appealing bedtime book compatible with Margaret Wise Brown''s classic Goodnight Moon. This small, square board book, with its rhythmic, repetitive text and witty pictures in shades of ever-brightening blues and greens (as the night turns to day), is sure to be a winner with preschool insomniacs. The sleepy household congregates on Granny''s bed, slowly building a very relaxed pile of bodies in shifting positions. Young readers will enjoy tracking the critters as they make their way, one by one, to the bed--and then guessing what will happen when the wakeful flea joins the heap. Be sure to look for this author-illustrator team''s other hilarious collaborative efforts, including Piggies and Silly Sally. (Baby to preschool)


The New York Times Book Review
Little children will quickly memorize Audrey Wood''s singalong verses chanting the quote ''old'' part before each surprising new twist. Meanwhile, Don Wood''s moonlight blue and pink pictures develop their own sly visual drama of loving sleep as his creatures wiggle, curl and cuddle endlessly around one another.
