THE SQUEAKY DOOR

It's time for bed! Granny tucks Little Boy in tight. She kisses him good night. She turns out the light. And he's not scared! No, not him! But when Granny shuts that door... SQUEEEEAK!

How can a granny keep that spooky, squeaky door from scaring her little boy awake at night?

Acclaimed storyteller Margaret Read MacDonald spins a humorous bedtime story, perfect for reading aloud, with comical illustrations by Mary Newell DePalma.

About the Author:

Margaret Read MacDonald is a storyteller, author, folklorist, and children's librarian, whom School Library Journal has called "a grand dame of storytelling." Ms. MacDonald is the author of numerous books, including pickin' peas, illustrated by Pat Cummings, and the award-winning book The Parents' Guide to Storytelling. She lives in Kirkland, Washington.



Mary Newell DePalma is the illustrator of many picture books, including Knock! Knock! by Jan Wahl, My Chair by Betsy James, and her own The Strange Egg. Ms. DePalma lives in Boston, Massachusetts.

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 2. MacDonald--storyteller, author, and children's librarian--brings her experience to bear in this straightforward retelling of an old favorite, distinguished by the way the words are set down on the page. Ellipses, uppercase letters, exclamation points, and divergent spellings ("squeeeeeak!") signal readers to pause, raise or lower their voices, or inject drama into the cumulative tale of a misguided grandma who is certain a critter (or several) can help her grandson adjust to sleeping in a big-boy bed. When she realizes what's really causing the problem, she finds a quick solution: "She oiled that squeaky door." The art is as distinctive as the text. DePalma's illustrations, diminutive and detailed, envision a cozy home and loving grandma, whose comical endeavors to outfit animals in pj's and kiss them goodnight ("smack!") brim with clever touches, while double-page spreads reflect the child's apprehension and loneliness by gradually increasing the distance between the bed and the slowly closing door. Numerous spot illustrations make this impractical for pajama parties, but for lap sharing before bed, it is just perfect. Stephanie Zvirin
