Nick Butterworth is the author and illustrator of many children's books, including All Together Now!, Amanda's Butterfly, Jingle Bells, Q Pootle 5Q Pootle 5 in Space, and Thud!

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- One cold, snowy night, a kindhearted park attendant finds his hospitality stretched to the limit as one pathetic, shivering forest animal after another asks to share his bed. The result--too many animals, not enough room. Just as Percy tries to sort out the tangled bedclothes, the animals panic upon hearing unearthly scratching from below the floor. Not to worry--it's only a mole, also seeking warmth, but during that intervening time each animal has discovered a cozy niche in Percy's messy quarters ideally suited to its needs. The illustrations are lighthearted and the penultimate scene of the cluttered room is a wealth of eye-catching details. Percy's bulletin board, with notes from Santa and an invitation from H. R. H. reveal Butterworth's whimsical sense of humor. While not breaking any new ground, this is an ingratiating if not exceptional wintertime selection. --Phyllis G.
