Napping house is a book of an old lady who is sleeping on a bed. Then A CHILD came and got on top of the old lady. And then a dog got on top of the kid. Then a cat got on top of the dog. Then a mouse came and got on top of the cat. And then a fly got on top of the mice and the flea bit the cat. Then everyone falls off the bed and the bed breaks.

The story reminds me of when I got on top of mom and my dad when they were sleeping. The character I liked the most was the granny because she did not feel anything when everybody got on top of her. When I read the book I laughed a lot because everybody got on top of the granny.

I recommend this book to people that like to sleep a lot because everybody in the house is sleeping. I also think that people who like funny stories would like this book.
