The Woods have done it again! Their classic, "The Napping House," has a companion. Rhyming and rhythmic text merrily gallops along the pages, in a similar fashion as the original. Due to the full moon, though, it works in reverse.

So it begins: "There is a house,

a full-moon house,

where everyone is restless."

Most of the characters are the same. Granny, the child, the dog, a cat, a mouse, and a cricket (instead of the flea). They are sleepless, fidgety, playful, prowling, worried, and chirping, respectively, but not cozy, snoring, dreaming, dozing, snoozing, nor napping!

Don Wood is the illustrator, using the same vivid blues and warm tones so we have this feeling that there is something quite familiar, that we just might know this book, yet we do NOT! It is great fun in a whole new way!

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0544308328, Hardcover)

In the wide-awake bed in the full-moon house, everyone is restless! The moonlight is pouring in and no one can get to sleep: not Granny, her grandchild, the dog, the cat, or even a mouse. It's not until a tiny musical visitor offers up a soothing song does the menagerie settle down, and finally everyone is off to dreamland. 
With a perfectly crafted text and stunning paintings, Audrey and Don Wood reveal once again why they are picture book creators of the highest order. The Full Moon at the Napping House, the highly anticipated follow-up to their beloved classic The Napping House, is the ideal book to share at bedtime or anytime.
