Hannah and Asha are the best of friends who love staying at each other's house. But they don't like going to bed, until one day Hannah's mum lost her temper.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- Best friends and next-door neighbors Asha and Hannah often sleep over at one another's house. One night, Hannah's mother tries her best to get them to bed. After stories, songs, and shadow puppets fail, and the girls grow wilder, she says they must be asleep by the time she counts to three ``OR ELSE!!!'' As the two speculate about what that threat might involve, their conjectures become increasingly far-fetched. In the meantime, Hannah's mother resumes her housework and slows her counting. All ends well with the children falling asleep before the count reaches three. Bogdanowicz's bright watercolor cartoons strike the right note between reality and exaggeration. Fantasies about the possible results of unheeded warnings are depicted in thought balloons against a backdrop of the cozy bedroom. Parents will certainly empathize with Hannah's mother, and many children will identify with the girls' bedtime reluctance, especially when sleeping at a friend's house. A familiar topic, handled with sensitivity and humor. --Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, MN

From Publishers Weekly:

Best friends Asha and Hannah share everything, "even some of their toys . . . most of the time." So when Asha's mother has to work late one night, Asha stays at Hannah's. The two girls are so excited after playing together that they can't go to sleep, no matter what Hannah's mom does to lull them. Finally, in a scenario that will be familiar to many parents, she declares that the girls must be in bed and asleep by the time she counts to three . . . "OR ELSE!!!" After vivid imaginings as to the meaning of this ultimatum--"she might turn us into frogs!"--the girls go to sleep rather than risk such frightful prospects. Bogdanowicz's watercolors evoke the story with quiet good humor, but her pictures are occasionally at odds with the text and the angular characters are somewhat unappealing. While the story portrays an amusingly recognizable situation, the narrative seems thin and repetitive. Ages 3-8.
