Greg Pizzoli's Geisel Honor-winning, giggle-worthy favorite teases readers with an interactive, bedtime read-aloud!
Will Owl ever get a good night's sleep? He's ready for bed, but as soon as he settles in, he hears a strange noise. He looks everywhere--in his cupboard, underneath the floorboards--even in his walls. He'll never get to sleep unless he can figure out what's going on! But as he's busy tearing his house apart, he doesn't notice one tiny, squeaky, mouse-shaped detail--the culprit!
Every observant young reader will point again and again to the answer to Owl's persistent question, laughing all along the way. From the creator of The Watermelon Seed comes another pitch-perfect tale that's empowering, engaging, and entertaining.
"Entertaining bedtime drama that works equally well for new readers and for sharing aloud."--Horn Book
"A funny tale about stress and an ever-upping ante, with a comforting end."--Kirkus Reviews
