A stormy night, a snoring dad, a houseful of restless sleepers, and some masterfully humorous timing make this a classic read-aloud for bedtime — or anytime. (Ages 4-8)

It’s the middle of the night. Everyone’s snoozing in bed when out of the darkness, squeak goes the door. Mama’s eyes fly open. Who is awake? Evie? Ivy? Little Mo? On a stormy night in a little house, only Papa keeps snoring away — snurkle, snark — unaware of the wild weather outside and the growing number of nervous bedmates within. Can nothing wake him? Creak! says the bed. . . . With a cumulative series of comical events, this delightful story sends readers barreling toward bedlam.

Nighttime...such a peaceful, quiet, calm time. Not always! Dad's snoring, the thunder's booming and where is that creak coming from? Everyone piles in mom and dad's bed and with each movement there's a new sound to tickle the ear. This is a great story for sequencing events or just to read for fun.
