"With a Rraaak and a Pssheew and a pitter patter STOMP, everybody in the red brick building's suddenly AWAKE, launching a runaway late-night cacophony that slowly quiets as calm is restored in this rhythmic bedtime winner certain to lull tiny listeners to sleep."— Meghan
“An enchanting debut by author Anne Wynter with vivid illustrations by the incomparable Oge Mora, Everybody in the Red Brick Building is fabulous! A joy to read for the whole family.”
— Kathy Neff, Square Books, Oxford, MS
A fresh, urban take on bedtime stories in the spirit of The House That Jack Built and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, from debut author Anne Wynter and Caldecott Honoree Oge Mora.
Everybody in the red brick building was asleep. Until . . .
Rraak! Wake up!
Pitter patter STOMP!
A chain reaction of noises wakes up several children (and a cat) living in an apartment building. But it’s late in the night, so despite the disturbances, one by one, the building’s inhabitants return to their beds—this time with a new set of sounds to lull them to sleep.
Oge Mora graduated from Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in illustration. Her debut picture book, Thank You, Omu!, was a Caldecott Honor Book, a New York Times Notable Book and Editors’ Choice, and a Junior Library Guild selection. She is also the author-illustrator of Saturday as well as the illustrator of The Oldest Student: How Mary Walker Learned to Read.
