Grumble Yawn follows the onomatopoeic antics of a young girl and her cat as they resist the bedtime routine.

This toddler-friendly book is composed entirely of sounds, and adults and children alike will find humor in a silly story that calls out to be read aloud with emphasis and humorous inflection. Howl moan squawk stomp—readers may recognize their own cacophonous bedtimes as the main character thwarts going quietly to sleep. Conceptualized and written by award-winning author Deborah Kerbel and illustrated by artist Jacqui Lee, this board book will delight readers of all ages.

“Young readers will reach for Grumble, Yawn time and time again. The fun onomatopoeic rhythmic sounds help to bring a new meaning to these words in an enjoyable way. It’s the perfect book to read before bedtime and an equally perfect book to add to your bookshelf. Highly Recommended.”
