When a little boy can't fall asleep, he imagines all of the late-night noises in his house as extraordinary adventures. With illustrations by the illustrator of the best-selling Diary of a Wombat, the outlandish images of bedtime dreams are brought to life.

From the hisss of a heater to the whiee of the wind, noises suddenly become other fantastic sounds and soon lead to great adventures for a newly tucked-in boy and his dog. The drip of a faucet becomes the waves splashing the bow of his great ship and the boom of thunder is the drumroll for a circus trapeze artist.

With dynamic, vibrant illustrations by the popular illustrator, Bruce Whatley, and musical rhyme by Beth Raisner Glass and Susan Lubner, Noises at Night perfectly captures the imagination of every sleepless child at bedtime and shows kids that bedtime is more fun than scary-and exhausting! After all of his dream-like wanderings, the boy and his dog fall asleep.

It shows the youngster wrapped in a snake’s puffy coils, the background ablaze in orange, but the snake’s eyes show that it is completely charmed by the boy’s flute playing.

But when the boy reveals his strategy for warding off fear ("I like to pretend when I shut off the light,/ The noises turn into adventures at night!"), cheerful reds and whites brighten a humorous illustration of a nervous dog sitting atop the boy's head, and the fun begins.
