It is nighttime, and an owl is sitting on a branch under a golden moon. Though he is wide-awake, many of the other animals are asleep. Owl goes around the forest finding out where his animal neighbors are slumbering.

Who is sleeping “behind the tree” owl wonders, and when we take a peek behind the tree we see that Moose is standing there with closed eyes. “Who will sleep near the pond?” we are asked as owl flies over the water and the bulrushes. When we lift the flap we see that the ducks and geese are resting there.

Little children will thoroughly enjoy this delightful board book with its flaps to lift, its delightful illustrations, and its clever ending.
