Owl is trying to sleep, but with the bees, squirrels and jays making so much noise, he can barely close his eyes. But at night, when his noisy neighbors are sleeping, Owl has the last-and very loud-word. The dramatic build-up and funny ending as well as the expressive faces of the animal characters makes this an engaging book for adult reader and child listener alike. 1990 (orig.
