...the curious absence of any parents or other adult caregivers in the story may give some children who are familiar with fears about thunderstorms pause...

Synopsis

FLASH! CRASH! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!
One rainy night, in the midst of a storm,
A brave little boy is cozy and warm.
He's all snuggled up, safe in his room—
When "ARROOO" howls dog, "is there room?"
Of course there's room—and all is well—
Until . . .
FLASH! CRASH! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!
What happens when too many friends start to squish in?
That's when the fun is sure to begin!

Even the youngest of readers are invited to count along as each of the family pets seeks refuge from the thunder and lightning in this lively and adorable picture book about bedtime, fears, and friendship.
