The Lovereading4Kids comment

The story of a boy who sees night time as a time for exploration and fun. Racing his cars, blasting off into space - all this needs to be done instead. Can anything be done to get him to go to sleep? A celebration of sleeplessness.

Synopsis

Oliver Who Would Not Sleep by Mara Bergman

Oliver Donnington Rimington Sneep couldn't and didn't and would not sleep. It's not that he is afraid of the dark, or monsters, or robbers or sounds from the park. But Oliver Donnington Rimington Sneep likes staying awake more than going to sleep. Join Oliver on his journey to Mars and back before he finally, goes to sleep.

Reviews

'A celebration of imagination and creativity.' Guardian

'A splendidly rhythmic text... (and) stylish illustrations.' The Times
