No Nap! Yes Nap! by Marge Palatini, Dan Yaccarino


No Nap! Yes Nap! by Marge Palatini, Dan Yaccarino

Mama says, NAP Baby says, NO NAP! Mama tries again: NAP? NO NAP!...Baby want to CLAP, DRINK, READ...anything but NAP! Margie Palatini (Piggie Pie) brings her signature humor to this rollicking sing-song read-along, inviting readers on a fast-paced chase through every room in the house as we follow Mummy on her quest to settle Baby down for a nap. Dashing from family room to living room, both on the table and under it, through the kitchen and even hiding in the laundry basket, acclaimed artist Dan Yaccarino (Doug Unplugged, Oswald) creates a hilarious romp in his signature retro style that culminates with mummy and baby collapsed - AT LAST - fast asleep in a chair. Nap...YES! A first-time pairing of two best-selling and award-winning talents, both debuting on th eLBYR list as they tackle the challenges of nap time as never before.
