An entire alphabet of raucous stuffed animals keeps an imaginative boy up at bedtime in this illustrated picture book. It’s bedtime. It should be quiet. But not if your room is a zoo! A young boy is kept awake by his toy animals (26 of them, from A to Z) who employ all the bedtime delay tactics they can muster. Armadillo takes his pillow, Crocodile wants a drink, Narwhal needs to brush his tooth, Owl and Possum argue about the lights, and Zebra hides under the bed. Finally, the boy steps up and puts a stop to the animals’ shenanigans so he can get some sleep. Written in humorous rhyming verse by debut picture book author Jerry Ruff and brought to life by Simona Ceccarelli’s whimsical illustrations, this book is a fun bedtime read that kids will ask for again and again.
