Charlotte Jane Battles Bedtime by Myra Wolfe, Maria Monescillo


Charlotte Jane Battles Bedtime by Myra Wolfe, Maria Monescillo

If only bedtime could walk the plank! Charlotte Jane the Hearty gets all the juice out of her days with pirate-girl pizzazz! She loves swashbuckling sessions, treasure hunts, and Fantastic Feats of Daring--all of which prove she has formidable oomph. There's absolutely no room in her day for bedtime. But can Charlotte Jane refuse to snooze and still be her hearty pirate self?


Monescillo's detailed and gently textured watercolors are full of insouciant pirate energy (Charlotte Jane's bravado is matched by that of her surly teddy bear, who wears an eye patch), and Wolfe's text has as much charm and verve as her heroine. -- Publishers Weekly

The use of dialogue and strong vocabulary results in a well-paced story that flows elegantly from beginning to end. The whimsical watercolor illustrations-accompanied by digitally created textures to add depth-are captivating, and perfectly complement the text. A generous helping of humorously entertaining pirate speak makes this an enjoyable choice for readers and listeners alike. -- School Library Journal
