Pizzoli, Greg Good Night Owl, PICTURE BOOK Disney Hyperion, 2016. $16.99. Content: G.
Owl can’t get to sleep. Everytime he says good night to himself he hears a squeak. He checks outside, unloads the stuff on the shelves, pulls up the floorboards, takes off the roof and eventually disassembles his house looking for what is squeaking. Well, the reader knows all along it is a mouse.
This is a delightful read aloud - just enough repetition to keep the audience participating, and it’s fun to see the silly things this owl is doing. Lots of opportunities to talk about choices and decisions in this 2017 Geisel honor book.
