Reviews

The bellhop's unflappability comically contrasts the hotel guest's escalating exasperation as they climb the stairs to one room after another, encountering dangling spiders, giraffes, and a mazelike hamster colony...Acrylic and ink pictures by Hawkes (Imagine That!) amplify the tale's humor with such playful flourishes as snakes wrapped around the art-deco hotel's pillars, a rodent perched on a chandelier, and Mr. Snore and the dinosaur's matching pince-nez and bunny slippers.
--Publishers Weekly

A fun addition to bedtime-themed books that is perfectly suited for one-on-one or small group sharing.
