Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

From bestselling, award-winning author Fleming and beloved illustrator of the Maple books Nichols comes a giggle-inducing read-aloud starring a cast of comically grumpy barnyard animals. Sure to become a bedtime favorite. <br> <br> This funny and irresistible picture book feels like a classic in the making. When Pig plops into his sty at bedtime, he finds Cow fast asleep in his spot. "Go sleep in your own bed!" he squeals, and sends her packing. But when Cow finally snuggles down into her stall, she finds Hen sleeping there. So begins a chain reaction of snoozing barnyard animals being awakened and sent off to their own beds, until every last one is in just the right place. Young children will delight in repeating the refrain "Go sleep in your own bed!" and laugh at the antics of these hilarious--and very sleepy--farm animals.<br> <br> Praise for Oh, No! by Candace Fleming: <br> *"Reads like an instant classic.

Horn Book Review

A cozy evening scene with a girl reading in bed, her window overlooking the silhouette of a barn, welcomes readers and listeners in to what should be a peaceful prelude to sleep. A closer look reveals that all is chaos on the farm as the animals settle in for the night. Pig toddled to his sty, waddley-jog. But when he plopped down--Moooo! Who do you think he found? Not only is the cow in the pigsty, but the chickens are in her stall, the horse is in the chicken coop, the sheep is in the stable, the dog is in the sheep enclosure, and so on. With its amusing onomatopoeia (clompety-stomp, peckety-droop) and cross, snippy farm animals, the story is highly entertaining and pairs smoothly with the bold, expressive art (in acrylic ink and colored digitally) to generate laughs and interactivity during a read-aloud. Meanwhile, the rhythm of the pithy text and the repetition in both language and plot create a satisfying pace and structure for young listeners. When, in the end, the dog chases the cat out of his kennel, the cat runs to the house, where the girl scoops it up--Oh, there you are!--and welcomes it into her own bed, allowing the story to end as gently as it began. But this time, the farms inhabitants may finally get some rest. julie roach (c) Copyright 2017. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
