Synopsis

Everybody Sleeps (but Not Fred) by Josh Schneider

Every kind of bird and beast has to sleep, from the monkeys in the jungle to the whales in the ocean to the ants under the ground. But not Fred. His to-do list is far too long! Armed with plenty of imagination, this determined little boy and his attempts to resist bedtime are sure to strike a chord with today's over scheduled families. Drowsy animals of all stripes look on in disbelief as Fred keeps on going and going and going, until...Could it be that, after so much activity, even Fred needs to rest? Shhh. Close the book softly, and please let Fred sleep.

Reviews

A fun addition to the bedtime canon.

Kirkus, starred review * From visual gags like jellyfish in sleep masks...to verse mocking soporific picture-book rhymes...it's a pitch perfect parody. Sorry, parents: kids will be too busy laughing to get sleepy reading this one.

Booklist Praise for Princess Sparkle-Heart Gets a Makeover by Josh Schneider Schneider continues to show a remarkable talent for bringing uncommon humor and psychological depth to ordinary situations. . . . Another winner.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
