First Second

Anna Banana can't settle down tonight, even though her stuffed animal friends are tired and just want to sleep. They suffer through delay after delay and excuse after excuse, until Anna Banana is finally sleepy. And then . . . it's time for their revenge! Anna Banana is about to get a taste of her own medicine.   Anna Banana is a fantastic character—a lively little girl and a fearsome tyrant to her stuffed animal pals. The first of two picture books featuring this character, Dominique Roques and Alexis Dormal's Sleep Tight, Anna Banana! is sure to be a hit with the youngest of readers . . . and with their parents!

REVIEWS

Praise for Sleep Tight, Anna Banana!

"Anna Banana learns a bit about consideration for others in this amusing story . . .  The humor keeps the story moving along at a brisk, entertaining pace." - School Library Journal
 
"A comics-inspired delight from France introduces an appealingly feisty girl to a U.S. audience . . . This tidy little package could inspire an uptick in bedtime exuberance." - Kirkus Reviews
 
"It's a fairly straightforward story about being considerate of others . . . but the mischievous physical comedy that Dormal brings to his loosely scrawled cartoons keeps it from ever feeling didactic or dull." -Publishers Weekly
