"Mischievous mix-ups rule in this fun-loving tale of barnyard
babies who stave off the bedtime hour for as long as possible....
Wild and Argent depict these antics through simple, rhythmic
sentences and muted watercolors that lend a cozy, snuggle-up feel
to the story....Young readers won't want these characters to say
good night and will surely use this book to forestall their own
"Wild scores again with a barnyard of animal babies who won't go to bed.... The repeated phrases will be sure to have sleepy children chiming in and Argent's strong, rich watercolors offer beguiling parents and offspring. A delightful bedtime treat that could stir up 'little rascals."
"Argent's lovely watercolor illustrations highlight the character's humorous expressions.... This rhythmic, repetitive bedtime story will lull kids to sleep and comfort tired parents."
"Children and the adults who read to them will relish this delightful depiction of bedtime stalling.... The richly saturated artwork has wonderful depth and captures the animals' expressions and actions with wit and charm. A humorous look at bedtime on the farm and also at home."
