Shhh! I’m Sleeping

Dorothée de Monfried. Gecko Press USA (Lerner, dist.), $12.99 (24p) ISBN 978-1-927271-95-7
If the Marx Brothers had been eight dogs instead of five men, they might’ve put together a skit like the one featured in this droll story from de Monfried (The Cake). Two four-story bunk beds flank each spread, with a dog in each bed; Popov is snoring up a storm, so Nono climbs into Misha’s bed for a story, waking the other dogs, who trade toys and glasses of water before all ending up piled up in a single bed together. The dogs’ prickly personalities, de Monfried’s enthusiastic cartooning, and an innately goofy premise deliver laughs with every page turn. Ages 2–5. (Mar.)
