I am Not Sleepy and I Will Not Go to Bed by Lauren Child


I am Not Sleepy and I Will Not Go to Bed by Lauren Child

Charlie has this little sister Lola. Sometimes he has to try and get her to go to bed. This is a hard job because Lola likes to stay up late. Lola says, I am not slightly sleepy at 6 or 7 or 8. I am still wide awake at 9 and not at all tired at 10, 11 and 12 and I will probably still be perky at even 13 o'clock in the morning. An innovative and fun-filled look at tricky bedtimes, this classic picture book will appeal to parents and children alike.
