Sleep Tight, Anna Banana by Alexis Dormal


Sleep Tight, Anna Banana by Alexis Dormal

When Anna Banana can't fall asleep, she makes sure no one else can, either. A charming tale about mayhem at bedtime! Tonight, Anna Banana can't settle down, even though her stuffed animal friends are tired and just want to sleep. They suffer through delay after delay and excuse after excuse, until Anna Banana is finally sleepy. And's time for their revenge! Anna Banana is about to get a taste of her own medicine.


The cheery cartoon illustrations are full of expression, and Dormal's loose style calls to mind Arthur Howard. - The Horn Book

A comics-inspired delight from France introduces an appealingly feisty girl to a U.S. audience . . . This tidy little package could inspire an uptick in bedtime exuberance. - Kirkus Reviews
