One of the young officers who overthrew King Farouq in 1952, Nasser was 36 years old when he became the undisputed leader of Egypt. In 1956 he nationalised the Suez Canal, braving the anger of Britain, France and war with Israel.
Every night Sherri hears noises that keep her awake. There’s a tap-tap, a tick-tock, a toot-toot, and a mysterious noise that stops as soon as she calls out to the rest of the household. One night she wakes up five times and even her pet dog and cat are tired the next day. What is this worrisome noise that disturbs everyone’s sleep?
Featuring warm and quirky illustrations by Abner Graboff, this is a charming and reassuring tale for any child who is frightened by noises in the night . . . with a delightful twist at the end.
