It's time to go to sleep. Yawn.

Click. With a pull of the chain, the lamp turns off and the room goes dark.

But wait! What's that? A noise? a drip, drop, dripping noise coming from somewhere down the hall. Maybe down the stairs.

It sure is hard to get to sleep with all that noise. Never fear because there's a hero on the loose. A hero who, with a tip, tap, click, click will find that leaky faucet and tighten it so the drip, drop, drip stops. Ah-h-h. Now we can roll over and...

But wait! What's that flap? Rustle? Creak? Never fear. Click is here.

What I love about this Nearly Wordless Book: Jeffrey's bold illustrations. And the bird-like lamp that goes wandering about the house, light shining from his belly to illuminate the way. This is just plain fun to read, and you'll never see your reading lamp in the same light again.
