From the Publisher:
Judy Laufer’s delightful new picture book, Last Night I Had a Laughmare!, takes sleepyheads of all ages to a magical world of bedtime adventure where nothing is EVER quite what it seems! Star-hung swings? Purple hair? Shoelaces made of spaghetti? These are just a few of the surprises in store for visitors to Gigglyville…and the town’s silly residents love to have company. Bring your own chair and join Liverlips, Smellyfeet, Purplepudding and Dishes on an exciting romp through a place where special wishes are granted, snowballs are made of ice cream, and readers will be laughing ‘til morning.
Last Night I had a Laughmare by J.E. Laufer is a very cute bedtime story. It is about a dream world where everything is silly. It reminds me of many of the Dr. Suess books I enjoyed as a kid and enjoy sharing with my children today. The illustrations are full page and quite vibrant. Laughmare is told with rhythm and rhyme, both of which are important to help keep the attention of the younger crowd. I would certainly recommend this book to my friends looking for more bedtime faire.
Here is a sample of one of the pages:
I would like to thank Smith Publicity and NetGalley for providing me with the eARC in exchange for my honest opinion.
