Summary: “What is going La La La above my head?” wonders the little boy standing on his bed. All the reader can see is a pair of legs and feet. Turn the page, and you’re on the next floor up. A man is singing opera. Above his head is the sound “ma ma ma”, which turns out to be a cooing baby. And so it goes, on up through a multi-story apartment building. The last floor is inhabited by an old man hollering, “Go to bed!” Peace descends as everyone settles down for a good night’s sleep. 32 pages; ages 3-7.
Pros: Can you guess what’s on the next page? Kids will have fun trying to figure out what’s making each noise. The bright, comic illustrations with cartoon bubble dialogue are eye-catching.
Cons: Are quotation marks going the way of the dinosaurs, with all dialogue now encapsulated in cartoon bubbles?
