Its late, and no one is being very neighborly in the apartment building at the center of this unruly story. A well-matched Barnett (The Magic Word) and Biggs (Tinyville Town Gets to Work!) start on the first floor, where a kid is awakened by noise from the apartment above. What is going la la la above my head? the boy asks. The answer is revealed on the next spread: A man is singing opera above my head. This pattern repeats for on each of the buildings 10 floors, with disturbances at each stop (rah rah rah cha cha cha), until a cranky old man in the top apartment shuts the whole thing down with an emphatic Go to bed! Funky choices in color, texture, and typography lend an appropriate devil-may-care air to Biggss spreads, and he cleverly teases each successive vignette by letting a slice of it peek through, like film caught between frames. The improbable castwhich includes a sheep, pair of cowboys, and a cheerleading squadand their percussive exclamations will elicit plenty of bedtime chuckles. Ages 48. Agent: Steven Malk, Writers House. (Mar.)
