Annotation

In his companion to Look! Jeff Mack delivers a two-word ode to the struggles of bedtime, now in board book for the littlest readers who just won't 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? But his friend the boy thinks enough is enough; no more fun and games. It's not Playtime-It's Bedtime! So off go the lights and the gorilla goes...

Well, definitely not to sleep. Until a little reverse psychology proves that even the most playful among us grows tired.

In his companion to Look! Jeff Mack once again shows off his clever ability to tell a story using only two words- playtime and bedtime Simple yet richly creative and bursting with childlike humor, Playtime? is a sweet and timeless story about a child's (or gorilla's) excited reluctance to go to bed, now in board book!

Multiple readings are sure to be demanded before bedtime finally comes."--Booklist, starred review "The gorilla's naughty, sneaky smile is a thing of beauty. Just try saving this book for evening! Both younger and older readers will be looking and laughing throughout the day."--School Library Journal

"A pleasant and action-filled going-to-sleep book, this selection may prove the perfect antidote for a sleepless night. A simple, fun-filled goodnight book."--Kirkus Reviews
