This funny, sweet bedtime picture book has a simple yet imaginative storyline. The humorous text, written in short rhythmic passages, is easy for early readers to master. The colored pencil cartoon drawings come to life on the page as the main character gets ready to run away. This is a great pick for children who just don't like to sleep -- and you know who they are.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
