Jason's dad falls asleep everywhere ... except in his own bed. All night long, Jason gets woken up by strange noises that lead him to find his dad in the most unexpected places-from on top of the refrigerator to the freezing cold woods outside his house.

Summary

Summary

Jason's sleepwalking father is snoring all around the house! In the bathtub, in the kitchen, even on top of the car in the garage. But when the front door is opened and Jason's father sleepwalks outside into the frozen night, Jason has to take special action.

A newly designed Classic Munsch picture book introduces this charming tale of a noisily napping parent to a new generation of young readers.


Author Notes

Robert Munsch was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on June 11, 1945. He received an undergraduate degree in history and a master's degree in anthropology. While studying to be a Jesuit priest, he worked part-time at an orphanage. He decided he liked working with children and left the Jesuits after 7 years to work in a daycare center. He studied for a year at the Elliot Pearson School of Child Studies at Tufts University. He ended up at a lab preschool at the University of Guelph in Guelph, Ontario and eventually became a Canadian citizen.

While working at a daycare center and telling stories to children, he realized that storytelling was what he loved to do and eventually he started writing the stories down. His first published title was Mud Puddle. He has written over 50 books including Love You Forever, Mortimer, Angela's Airplane, Andrew's Loose Tooth, Stephanie's Ponytail, Moira's Birthday, and Put Me in a Book.
