I really loved The Napping House, it is one of my favorite reads for children's stories. I have a couple of their signed posters of this first book and so when I saw this sequel, I had to read it. Perhaps I love them because everything is contained in the bedroom ( a room so cozy), everything is sequential in the novel and the illustrations are dreamy and simple. I love many other works by these authors especially The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry and the Big Hungry Bear and King Bidgood's in the Bathtub. Inside this book, we have the same characters from the first novel only now they can't go to sleep. They are worried, playful, fidgety, wide-awake and a few other adjectives. The full moon is rising and granny looks tired but sleep is not coming at least not now. It takes a special visitor for sleep to come to the full-moon house and when he does, everyone settles down. What a wonderful addition!
