A storytime favorite.

— Rachel


Greg Pizzoli's Geisel Honor-winning, giggle-worthy favorite teases readers with an interactive, bedtime read-aloud perfect for board book.

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.

Also available in board book from Greg Pizzoli:
Good Night Owl
The Twelve Days of Christmas
