Night, Night, Sleep Untight!
Alicia Acosta / Lucía Serrano
How many noises does anyone need to finally fall asleep? Find out how many Mr. Parsley tries…
Mr. Parsley had a keen ear and couldn’t fall asleep. Back in the city, he was bothered by the horns (‘honk, hooooonk!’), ambulance sirens (Nee-naw, nee-naw, nee-naw!) and people talking on the streets (‘blah, blah, blah, blah’). So he moved to the campsite, to a beautiful cottage far away from the urban noises… Little did he know what other noises he would come across!
