    Audrey and Don Wood have been writing and illustrating books together for more than twenty years. They live in Santa Barbara, California.
    Everyone knows the cumulative rhyme “This Is the House That Jack Built,” butThe Napping House (1984) is close on its heels in the race for posterity: “And on that granny / there is a child / a dreaming child / on a snoring granny / on a cozy bed / in a napping house, / where everyone is sleeping.” Included in the napping house menagerie is a dozing dog, a snoozing cat, a slumbering mouse, and a wakeful flea who ends up toppling the whole sleep heap with one chomp! Don Wood’s delightfully detailed comical illustrations are bathed in moonlight blues until the sun comes up, then all is color and rainbows and a very awake household.

      This is a great story, but the description is incorrect. This is a board book not a hard cover.

    • Napping House

      I was suprised at how small this book was, I thought it would be larger, but it's ok, it is very sturdy, so it will last. I loved this book as a child, and my children love it as well. A great going-to-bed book!
