Very cute. And the MC is delightfully sassy. ( )

It is quite comical that the little girls just gets so frustrated with these animals as they continue to nag and bug her for things and use her belongings. At the end of the day after all the critters have continued to annoy her, she realizes they are asleep in her bed. She is too tired to get them out so she lets them stay after all. ( )

This book is great. It tells the story of a young girl who unintentionally finds herself with one too many animal visitors. It's clever and the illustrations are beautiful. You can use this in the classroom setting to make children laugh or teach them about various animals. ( )
