Hannah’s Night is about a little girl who wakes up and it is still dark. What should she do? While everyone is asleep, she goes and gets all the things out she is normally not allowed to use. I rate this book three stars. I would recommend this book for 5 plus.

Hannah’s night, by Komako Sakai (1966-)
This book is about a girl called Hannah who woke up in the night. 🌕 She had a pet cat that was awake too. 🐱 Her sister wasn’t awake and no one in her family was awake.
It was a short story. I love the story because it was funny. The funniest part was when Hannah had to pee and her cat had to pee at the same time.
My favourite characters were Hannah and the cat. I liked the pictures.
If I could give this book another title it would be Hannah and her cat’s night. If I could give this book another ending it would be that her sister wakes up and they have got gummy bears and have a party together.
I would recommend this book to girls and for anyone iwho wants to wake up early before the grown-ups.
