Cherry Pig, Thunderbolt the puppet mouse and Beanbag Frog refuse to go to sleep! Luckily, clever Stella has a plan...Stella really wants to go to bed and have some rest, but her three rowdy bedtime companions - Cherry Pig, Thunderbolt the puppet mouse and Beanbag Frog - are having none of it. They are full of energy, jumping all around the place each claiming to be the World Champion of Staying Awake. But Stella is very good at thinking up ways to get them to sleep. After dazzling imaginary adventures across the sea, on a train and in a Star Ship Balloon we'll see who is really the Champion of Staying Awake. In December 2007, Sean Taylor's book "When a Monster is Born", Illustrated by Nick Sharratt, won a gold medal in the Nestle Prize for works for children aged five years and under.

Amazon Best Books of the Month, July 2011: It’s time for bed, but Stella’s animals are wide awake, so what’s a girl to do? Stella knows she can get them to sleep with a little imagination, so first she dreams a pillow into a ship for Cherry Pig, and they sail across the waves. At the end of the voyage Cherry Pig is asleep, but now Thunderbolt thinks he is the world champion of staying awake, so Stella creates a special dream for him, too. With clever stories that deliver sleepy results, Stella tucks each animal into bed until, finally, she is the last one still awake--but not for long. Pairing a witty narrative with rich illustrations, The World Champion of Staying Awake is destined to become a treasured bedtime classic. --Seira WilsonAbout the Author:
