Snoozapalooza follows ten animals trying to find warmth for winter. So, their solution cuddle together in an animal heap. Everyone is sleeping nicely until they hear a ROAR, which they fear until they figure out where it is coming from.
The text has a wonderful use of rhythm and rhyme. I love the repetition. It flowed well and is easy to read aloud. The text was just the right length of a picture book.
The book feels like The Mitten, but without the boy or mitten. I did appreciate a little different take on the story because I love The Mitten so much. The pile of animals at the end is fun.
The illustrations are adorable. I love the style and how it makes the animals look so cute. Perfect to go with the fun text. I liked how the text moved with the pictures. The background is very similar throughout but works well with the animals piling on.
My kids loved the animals and listening to the rhythm and rhyme. My three-year-old liked the bear and my six-year-old liked the red fox.
