Sleep Tight, Anna Banana!
Dominique Roques & Alexis Dormal
Published by First Second Books, June 2014
Anna Banana can't settle down tonight, even though her stuffed animal friends are tired and just want to sleep. They suffer through delay after delay and excuse after excuse, until Anna Banana is finally sleepy. And then . . . it's time for their revenge! Anna Banana is about to get a taste of her own medicine.
Anna Banana is a fantastic character—a lively little girl and a fearsome tyrant to her stuffed animal pals. The first of two picture books featuring this character, Sleep Tight, Anna Banana! is sure to be a hit with the youngest of readers . . . and with their parents!
Alexis Dormal was born in Brussels in 1977 and studied cinema. He then decided to write and draw for comics and children's books.
Dominique Roques is Alexis Dormal's mother and started to write with her son in 2005.
"Anna Banana learns a bit about consideration for others in this amusing story . . . The humor keeps the story moving along at a brisk, entertaining pace." -- School Library Journal
"A comics-inspired delight from France introduces an appealingly feisty girl to a U.S. audience . . . This tidy little package could inspire an uptick in bedtime exuberance." -- Kirkus Reviews
