They wake up sleepily and take him back upstairs where he instantly goes to sleep or does he?

    7. This book is hilarious. Our main character is just sure that his parents have a huge party after he falls asleep so he hatches a plan. He plans to go down stairs when it is "way past his bedtime" and find his parents in the middle of their party. When he goes downstairs, he finds his parents crashed on the couch sleeping.

Really sweet book with colorful and silly illustrations. Great for story times!

    10. This book has a great concept. The illustrations were lively and complemented the main character's amazing imagination. I liked the moments when the text was spare and left room for the art to expand on the story. Kids will like the silly alliterative attendees at the "party." Parents will empathize with the MC's parents. Should be a fun read-aloud.
