About the Book

A fresh, urban take on bedtime stories in the spirit of The House That Jack Built and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, from debut author Anne Wynter and Caldecott Honoree Oge Mora.

Everybody in the red brick building was asleep. Until . . .

WaaaAAH!

Rraak! Wake up!

Pitter patter STOMP!

Pssheew!

A chain reaction of noises wakes up several children (and a cat) living in an apartment building. But it’s late in 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.

Critical Praise

"The onomatopoeia in this cumulative tale is appropriate for the actions described and is so much fun to read . . . Certain to become a favorite bedtime book." — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Sounds rise to a crescendo and then descend into quiet in this rollicking roller coaster of a book. . . . A sound-evocative tour de force." — Booklist (starred review)

"Mora's dynamic, richly colored collage art reinforces the warm, cozy scenes and adds depth, ­texture, and vitality to the pages. The subtle diversity, urban setting, and universality of theme make this an excellent addition to bedtime bookshelves everywhere." — Horn Book (starred review)

"Mora's art is the ideal match for Wynter's engaging text . . . This gentle sonic adventure is just right for sending children off to sleep." — BookPage (starred review)

"Lush collages in jewel tones by Caldecott Honoree Mora illuminate the story of a restless night in a city apartment building whose inhabitants represent many ethnicities, skin tones, and family structures . . . In this lulling story by debut author Wynter, readers watch a group of people confront the same common communal experience—and overcome it." — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
