Review: This is the story of barn full of farm animals sleeping, except for the fea who is couphing and trying to hold back his big sneeze. Finally he sneezes and wakes everyone up. Someone gives him a tissue and everyone goes to sleep until the pig thinks he is going to sneeze. This book goes through rhyming and using repetition to emphasis parts of the story. It also tells a bit about the animals in the book. This book is a good example of fantasy because the characters are animals who talk and use tissues. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0805077561, Paperback)

On a dark, dark night
On an old, old farm
In a rickety, crickety
Tumbledown barn,
Everyone slept peacefully-
But not the flea . . .

A delightfully silly barnyard tale-now in paperback

What happens when a flea gets a bad case of the sniffles? Utter pandemonium in the barnyard! This rollicking picture book follows a lovable flea and his exceptional sneeze through the mayhem. Before the night is over, every animal-from the mouse to the cow-has something to say. Will the animals ever fall back to sleep?

Lynn Downey's quirky text and Karla Firehammer's charming pictures make this a winning story for preschool children.
