Mary Ann Fraser is the acclaimed author and illustrator of many books for children, including I. Q. Goes to School, How Animal Babies Stay Safe, Why Frogs Are Wet, and In Search of the Grand Canyon: Down the Colorado with John Wesley Powell, A School Library Journal Book of the Year. She lives in Simi Valley, California.From Booklist:
A nocturnal pet-shop resident is disturbing the other slumbering creatures. In the dark room, their silhouettes gather around a cage, and their colorful eyes present an opportunity for guessing. The lights come on to reveal a hamster busily spinning on its wheel surrounded by a disgruntled cat, parrot, dog, turtle, guinea pig, mouse, and rabbits. With an admonishment to “Sh-h-h-h-h,” they turn off the lights. And the hamster does try, but with a “scritch, scratch” and a “pitter-pat,” the little rodent continues its evening activities. Awakened again, the pet-shop denizens begin to ponder ways to get the hamster to sleep. A bath, toothbrushing, lullabies (delivered by the parrot), and a bedtime story all help do the trick. On each page, the sizes and shapes of the sound words reflect their nature, from “CRUNCH,” with bites missing, to a soapy “scrub scrub.” Each spread is full of color, with soft-hued backgrounds and crisply illustrated creatures. This fun and amusing book about bedtime is also appropriate for newly independent readers. Preschool-Grade 2. --Ernie Cox
