School Library Journal - 10/01/2018 PreS-Gr 1—Readers will notice early on that there is something a bit unusual about the Sharemore Hotel. When an exhausted Mr. Snore checks in, he doesn't notice the twin snakes wrapping around the front desk's posts and heads straight for his bed on the first floor. He is nonplussed to find a mouse asleep on his pillow. When he calls to complain, the bellhop explains that the mouse has had a rough day and suggests a room on the second floor, which turns out to be occupied by a pig. Unsatisfactory rooms abound right up to the 13th floor where Mr. Snore finds an empty, quiet place with absurdly large accommodations. He promptly falls asleep. The final call to the bellhop comes from the rightful inhabitant of the 13th floor: a dinosaur unhappy about finding Mr. Snore asleep in his bed. Acrylic and ink illustrations show a cheerful bellhop and a growing assortment of creatures congregating at the front desk of the Sharemore Hotel. VERDICT A fun addition to bedtime-themed books that is perfectly suited for one-on-one or small group sharing.—Kelly Roth, Bartow County Public Library, Cartersville, GA - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
