It's Only Stanley; Jon Agee - Dial Books - 2015
In this cute story, the Wimbleton family: Wendy, Wanda, Willie and Wylie, has been trying to get some sleep, but it isn't happening.
Stanley, the family dog, has been hard at work from one noisy project to the next. Sometimes Stanley is banging pots while cooking, fixing the drain or the television and other noisy projects, but little does his family know that he has been planning for a big adventure as well -- an interplanetary trip, not in a spaceship, but by launching the house. Whoever thinks worker bees and worker ants are all the rave, evidently, has not met Stanley.
This is a very fun story with cute and colorful, as well as engaging illustrations. The story itself is written in rhyming verse, which I loved and found quite fun to read. The illustrations showing Max, the family cat, throughout all of Stanley's projects was especially fun as well.
This is one that most children will ask to have read to them more than once.
