Bedtime is Canceled by Cece Meng, Aurelie Neyret


Bedtime is Canceled by Cece Meng, Aurelie Neyret

The note read: Bedtime is canceled. Maggie thought of it. Her brother wrote it. A news reporter read it. This was big news. He reported it.Before they knew it, the whole city discovered that bedtime had officially been canceled, so no one wentto sleep!

Cece Meng, author of I WILL NOT READ THIS BOOK andTOUGH CHICKS, delivers a pitch perfect cautionary tale, a wry parody of our information-glutted age, and heart-warming brother & sister adventure. Illustrated with wit and whimsy byFrench artist, Aurelie Neyret.


A few reads of this ought to tire out kids before their not-canceled-after-all bedtimes. Booklist Meng playfully expands and exaggerates children's efforts to put off the inevitable lights-out and turns a universal tug of war into a hilarious tour de force. Kirkus Meng's writing is clear, direct, and funny, and Neyret's digitally created illustrations have an appropriately comic and cartoonish tone. Bulletin
