"Nana says that sometimes Papa snores.  And Papa says that sometimes Nana snores.  The truth is, they both snore.  I just can't decide who snores louder." 

This is a really fun book.  The snoring sounds are a real hoot!  Coming from a family of snorers, I can hear them in my head . . . . . "ARRGHH-OOM, ARRGHH-OOM!  GARRUUM, GARRUUM!"  And when Papa and Nana snore, a whole laundry list of fun things happen:  the window blinds clank together, the dishes in the drainer shake themselves dry, the shoes jump off the shoe rack and tumble down the stairs.  Each scenario builds on the last, gaining momentum up to the surprise ending.

Kids will love hearing the snoring sounds and it's a lot of fun hearing them when you ask them, "Does Mommy or Daddy snore?  What do they sound like?"  There are a lot of giggles when reading this book!

Happy Reading!
