From bestselling, award-winning author Fleming and beloved illustrator of the Maple books Nichols comes a giggle-inducing read-aloud starring a cast of comically grumpy barnyard animals. Sure to become a bedtime favorite.
This funny and irresistible picture book feels like a classic in the making. When Pig plops into his sty at bedtime, he finds Cow fast asleep in his spot. "Go sleep in your own bed!" he squeals, and sends her packing. But when Cow finally snuggles down into her stall, she finds Hen sleeping there. So begins a chain reaction of snoozing barnyard animals being awakened and sent off to their own beds, until every last one is in just the right place. Young children will delight in repeating the refrain "Go sleep in your own bed!" and laugh at the antics of these hilarious—and very sleepy—farm animals.

Night has fallen on the farm and, as in many human households, none of the animals wants to sleep in its own bed. Pig's plan to get shut-eye in his sty is thwarted when he discovers Cow sleeping there. Cow is admonished, but after she trudges to her stall, her derriere lands on Hen. And so it goes. The only animal who doesn't have to settle for her assigned bed is Cat, who gets a plum spot indoors, snuggled up with her young caretaker. Nichols's (Maple & Willow's Christmas Tree) digitally colored ink cartoons humorously capture that distinctly after-hours sense of annoyance there are a lot of furrowed brows and angrily pointed hooves. Fleming (Giant Squid) punctuates her text with plenty of crowd-pleasing refrains, remarks, and repetition: along with the title, each animal intruder emits a species-specific cry upon discovery and a distinctive grumble ("Oh, baaah-ther!" whines Sheep). No rationale is given for this jumbling game of musical beds, and readers won't care one bit. Ages 3 7. Author's agent: Ethan Ellenberg, Ethan Ellenberg Agency.
