The Lovereading4Kids comment
A fresh take on bedtime … Stella can’t possible go to bed, she has far too many toys to settle first. Cherry Pig, Beanbag Frog and Thunderbolt, the puppet mouse, all need to be got to sleep. Stella comes up with everything she can think of but, how ever inventive she is, getting her charges to sleep is no easy task. Glorious illustrations capture the wonderful invention of the story.
The World Champion of Staying Awake by Sean Taylor
Cherry Pig, Thunderbolt the puppet mouse and Beanbag Frog refuse to go to sleep! Luckily, clever Stella has a plan...Stella really wants to go to bed and have some rest, but her three rowdy bedtime companions - Cherry Pig, Thunderbolt the puppet mouse and Beanbag Frog - are having none of it. They are full of energy, jumping all around the place each claiming to be the World Champion of Staying Awake. But Stella is very good at thinking up ways to get them to sleep. After dazzling imaginary adventures across the sea, on a train and in a Star Ship Balloon we'll see who is really the Champion of Staying Awake. In December 2007, Sean Taylor's book When a Monster is Born, illustrated by Nick Sharratt, won a gold medal in the Nestle Prize for works for children aged five years and under.
