Jackson is a mole who moves into a new underground home. He works hard during the day to settle in, but encounters strange noises while trying to sleep at night. Three nights of no sleep makes for a very tired little mole and so he approaches each noise maker to politely request a more peaceful night. Each creature seems willing to help but are unsure of what to do with themselves at night if they cannot make noise … until Jackson is able to find the ideal solution for each one.
With pages bursting with beautiful colors and amusing characters, it is sure to be a fun story for children between the ages of four and seven. Using Jackson’s night-time experiences, Niner is cleverly helping kids explore ways to be not-so-afraid when the lights go out — making it an ideal outlet for little ones who may have a fear of ghosts, monsters, and pixies. No More Noisy Nights shows children that sometimes things are really not as they seem and that making friends can be easier with a little cooperation and politeness. It’s a perfect and cozy little picture book to get children laughing and ready for bedtime.
