Illustrated by John MandersThe opening phrase "The moon is big, the moon is bright" is a great beginning for this adorable story. This is a fun animal noises/counting book, with some unusual word choices -- the eeeeeeeeeeeee of eight mosquitoes, the splash of goose wings on water and, most satisfying of all, the big baarrrrrr-rumph! of a bullfrog. The artwork is highly stylized and somewhat chaotic. The rolling rhythm and wild momentum of the story will pull kids in. It's full of nonsensical words like "rowl-yowl" and "bar-rum". I had fun reading this one. The simple but catchy rhyming verse uses a counting pattern and familiar creatures to tell a cute story of a supposedly "quiet night".

But Dandy is afraid of all the modern noises and commotion that didn't occur 60 million years ago.
"So the children made a sign, which they put in front of school. It said, QUIET on account of dinosaur."
