Mo Willems, creator of the revolutionary, award-winning, best-selling Elephant & Piggie books, has another breakout beginning-reader series. An ensemble cast of Squirrels, Acorns, and pop-in guests hosts a page-turning extravaganza. Each book features a funny, furry adventure AND bonus jokes, quirky quizzes, nutty facts, and so, so many Squirrels.
In I Want to Sleep Under the Stars, Zoom Squirrel dreams of sleeping under the night stars. The Squirrel pals are excited to help! But will their encouragement be enough-or too much? Do you know more about sleeping under the stars than the Squirrels do? You will by the end of this book!
|Review Quote*||PRAISE FOR WHO IS THE MYSTERY READER?|
"Willems' cartoony characters are as goofy and appealing as ever . . . The clueless squirrels fail to uncover the mystery readers' identities, but beginning readers will certainly puzzle this out as they are enjoying comic conventions (speech bubbles, panels, varied font sizes, etc.) and frequent metafictive asides. Smart, sassy, and laugh-out-loud fun; Willems remains at the top of his game."-Booklist
