The Napping House by Audrey Wood


SKU: 9780544602250 Category:

Everyone knows the cumulative rhyme “This Is the House That Jack Built,” but The Napping House (1984) is close on its heels in the race for posterity:

“And on that granny

there is a child

a dreaming child

on a snoring granny

on a cozy bed

in a napping house,

where everyone is sleeping.”

Included in the napping house menagerie is a dozing dog, a snoozing cat, a slumbering mouse, and a wakeful flea who ends up toppling the whole sleep heap with one chomp! Don Wood’s delightfully detailed comical illustrations are bathed in moonlight blues until the sun comes up, then all is color and rainbows and a very awake household.
