Title: Sleep Tight, Anna Banana
Author: Dominique Rogues
Illustrator: Alexis Dormal
Anna Banana cannot seem to settle herself this bedtime and wants to read. She puts off sleep much to the annoyance of her stuffed animals who are all tired and finally have had enough. When she does turn out the light and is off to slumberland her animals decide it's payback time. They rally together to give her a dose of what it is like to be kept awake unwillingly and Anna Banana is not amused.
Anna Banana is a feisty little tyke with a mind and will of her own. She definitely wants to be in charge and in no certain terms lets her animals know it. The book highlights the love of reading but also the consequences of being selfish and making the world around you all about you and not being considerate of the needs of others.
The illustrations are just fantastic. They are very expressive, colourful and playful. This book will give you many opportunities to smile and even laugh out loud as it is shared. I highly recommend it. Sleep Tight, Anna Banana will be released June 17, 2014 so keep an eye out for it and be sure to add it to your collection of great children's books.
