A Loud Winter's Nap

by Katy Hudson
Illustrated by Katy Hudson

For Tortoise, winter is good for one thing: a nice long nap. Can friends open his eyes to a season full of surprises? Every year, Tortoise hibernates through winter. He assumes he isn’t missing much. However, his friends are determined to prove otherwise! Will Tortoise sleep through another winter, or will his friends convince him to stay awake and experience the frosty fun? In the follow-up to her bestselling Too Many Carrots, Katy Hudson delivers a charming picture book, featuring the fun of winter and the heartwarming benefits of friendship.

Reviews

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books - SS

"Hudson’s winter landscapes invite the viewer right in with their rich brown branches and evergreens against pale pillowy snow drifts, and kids will be eager to join in with Tortoise’s grumpy refrain every time one of his friends asks him why tortoises don’t like winter: “They just don’t.” Bold sound- effect lettering heightens both Tortoise’s annoyance at his friends’ activities and his own delight when he discovers the pleasures of winter. Tortoise is adorably cranky in his resistance to winter activities, and his friends are encouraging without being pushy." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Kirkus Reviews

"Hudson's detailed and colorful artwork is sure to attract attention, and the animals are cuddly cute with expressive faces, especially Tortoise's. Combine this with a nonfiction look at hibernation to round out a winter storytime." - Kirkus Reviews
