Annotation

Using illustrations and only two words, shows the trouble a young boy has trying to get his very playful pet gorilla to go to bed.

Publisher Description

Bedtime can be a challenge for the best of us. But when you're a fun-loving, overactive pet gorilla, bedtime is downright hard. Who would want to go to sleep when Playtime is so much more fun?

Certainly not this gorilla!

Cleverly using only two words - playtime and bedtime - and an abundance of clever, giggle-inducing artwork, Jeff Mack delivers a whimsical battle of wills about stubborn reluctance to go to bed. Your own little gorilla will find it irresistible.

Both younger and older readers will be looking and laughing throughout the day."--School Library Journal
