"Author and illustrator make bedtime about as appealing as it gets." — PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review)
It's sleepytime down in the woods, but not one of the baby animals is ready to go to bed. The bear cubs want to play, the little hedgehogs are hungry, the bunnies are peek-a-booing, and their mamas are at their wits' end! Welcome to a delightful woodland world full of tots of all types eluding bedtime — until wise Grandma Owl affirms with a story that the time is just right to say good night.
