The whole family is in bed, and the house is now quiet. Or is it? Drip, drop. Creak, creak. Achoo! A curious bird, who happens to be a lamp, investigates. Jeffrey Ebbeler's whimsical nocturnal fantasy explores the world of sound as an endearing bird makes himself useful putting the home he shares with his humans in order.
